The 2012 Nebula Awards’ list of finalists dropped today!


NebulaAwardsNow that everyone’s nearly finished cramming for the Academy Awards, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America has posted their list of final nominees for their Nebula Awards. Voting remains opens through March with the awards ceremony occurring mid-May. This year somewhat to my shame, I mostly recognize titles from their secondary Ray Bradbury and Andre Norton Awards for film and YA. There are some hard choices in those categories! I look forward to getting up to speed on the other nominees, but it doesn’t look like this is going to be a year of obvious winners.
