Nebula Nominating Ends Tomorrow

I cast my nominations for the Nebs today.  SFWA members have until tomorrow's deadline to get their nods in.

Of my nominations, I feel most strongly about Jay Lake's "America, Such as She Is" in the novella category, a story that really got to me, Eugie Foster's "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast," in the novelette category, and The Windup Girl, Paolo Bacigalupi.

I have work from last year that has attracted a little Nebula love:  "Solace," and "Where Did You Come From, Where Did You Go," in the short story category (the second one may be confusing since the story originally appeared as "Who Do You Think You Are," and I went back to my original title in my short story collection--I don't think this is an issue, though, since it has less of a chance of making the ballot than "Solace"), and "The Radio Magician" in the novelette category.

I was a Nebula finalist several years ago with "The Last of the O-Forms."  It truly is wonderful to make the final ballot.  I'm happy for everyone who makes it to that exclusive list.

There is an advantage to waiting on the voting, by the way.   All the works I wanted to nominate were already on the informal tally of nominations, so I was able to cut and paste from the informal tally to my nominating ballot.  No ham-handed typing on my part!
