William's Book Blog

Mostly book reviews.  Very rarely I'll allow William Campbell Powell (author) to write a blog entry on publishing activity, but he's under orders to keep that stuff over on his Facebook page and on http://williamcampbellpowell.com

Nebula Award winners announced

This the Science Fiction Writers of America voting for the best of 2013.  I can't really comment on most of the categories, because there were only five weeks for voting, and with a full-time job, I couldn't fit in all the nominees.


I did read all the short stories and also the Andre Norton nominees for YA.


While ‘‘If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love,’’ by Rachel Swirsky, wasn't my personal choice, it is a worthy winner.


I will say, however, that Nalo Hopkinson's "Sister Mine" was head and shoulders above the competition, and I'm absolutely delighted that it won.  My review is at http://williamcampbellpowell.booklikes.com/post/835578/sister-mine-nebula-andre-norton-shortlist-
