The Nebulas were this weekend, but the ceremony to announce the winners in all categories was held last night. I only mentioned the Best Novel, Novella (well, sort of), and Andre Norton nominees and so, I will tell you which books won in those categories:
For Best Novel: The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
For Best Novella: The Women of Nell Gwynne’s by Kage Baker
The Andre Norton Award: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
Congratulations to all of the nominees! I had hoped Bacigalupi would win and was touched when his speech (I watched the ceremony on ustream) came unprepared because he honestly thought he would not win. The Windup Girl was definitely one of the BEST Science Fiction novels I read last year. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend that you do.
A full listing of all winners can be found here.
Be ready for tomorrow: I’ll have a review of the upcoming Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce.
