The winners of this years (last years? Depends how you look at it I guess) Nebula Award have just been announced. Check out the full list here.
First off, winner of the Best Novel award goes to A Master of Djinn by P. Djèlí Clark. I am super psyched about this for a number of reasons. Firstly, because I love everything this man writes and think it is awesome that his first novel won a Nebula. Also, it is just an amazing story, set in a really fun world. I cannot wait for more entries in this Dead Djinn series. If you haven’t read a Dead Djinn story, you should try one. Besides just being happy that a book I loved is getting recognition, I’m also excited that the possibility of a novel taking out all three major awards is still on the table.
In the Novella category we have Premee Mohamed’s And What Can We Offer You Tonight, which was published by Neon Hemlock. I’m not familiar with this publisher, but I’m always stoked to hear about new novella publishers. I know it’s called an awkward length, but I think most novellas are just the right length. The Best Novelette Award was won by Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki’s O2 Arena and the Best Short Story Award was taken out by Sarah Pinsker’s Where Oaken Hearts Do Gather. Rounding out the prose awards is Darcie Little Badger’s A Snake Falls to Earth, which was given The Andre Norton Nebula Award for Middle Grade and Young Adult Fiction. I loved Little Badger’s debut, Elatsoe, so I need to stop dragging my heels and check out this one too.
Anyways, congratz to all the Nebula Winners.
