Nebula Awards Final Ballot


SFWA has posted the final ballot for the Nebula Awards. Lots of familiar names on the ballot, but a huge shoutout to Eugie Foster and Jason Sanford for upholding the Interzone flag–and to sometimes contribs Will McIntosh and Rachel Swisky for making the cut, too. I’m so glad that not only are Interzone stories eligible this year, but also that we have two of them on the ballot (strictly speaking, Eugie’s story would have been eligible by virtue of publication in Apex, but still).

The only one of those four I haven’t had a chance to read is Bridesicle, but the other three stories are definitely well worth a read (“Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast” in particular is fabulous).

  1. Hi Aliette, most Interzone stories still aren’t eligible but these two were reprinted online. If Interzone continues to make its fiction available via Fictionwise or other ebook form, then they would be eligible. But paper publications from other countries still aren’t.

  2. Hi Mary,

    Interzone publishes every issue on fictonwise (there’s a slight lag because fictionwise takes some time to make those available, but the whole magazine is avaiable in ebook form).
    Back when I asked, the committee told me that this made all the stories eligible–not just those reprinted online as part of another magazine (like Apex). Did I misunderstand something?
