Nebula Award Nominees 2010

Posted Tuesday February 22, 2011 by John Gunders in |

The Nebula Awards for science fiction and fantasy published in 2010 were announced yesterday.

Unlike the Hugo Awards, which are popular awards voted on by registrants at Worldcon, the Nebulas are peer awards, and nominations and votes are limited to active members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The winners will be announced on 21 May 2011.

There are six categories: Short Story, Novelette, Novella, Novel, The Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation, and the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy. At the ceremony in May they will also announce the winner of the Solstice Award for outstanding contribution to the field.
