2009 Nebula Nomination Period Open

The 2009 Nebula nomination period opened yesterday and runs through Feb. 15, 2010. This is the first year of the revamped Nebula nomination rules, a process that really, really needed an overhaul. It promises to be much more transparent and commonsensical than the previous system.

I invite folks to peruse the Carl Brandon society list of 2009 short stories by writers of color and the Nebula suggested reading offerings at the SFWA.org site for some fabulous fiction to consider nominating.

And, of course, my own shameless plug:

My novelette “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman Beast” was published by Interzone and reprinted in Apex Magazine in 2009, making it eligible for Nebula consideration.

Folks can read it for free from Apex‘s site or listen to a free podcast of it, read fabulously by Lawrence Santoro, at Escape Pod.
