All the writing awards, anyway. Read about it here.
It’s a very good day for women in SF/F.
Most of these authors are in my TBR pile, though the only Nebula winning-work I’ve read so far is Aliette de Bodard’s “The Waiting Stars,” which I found very deserving — it is the only science fiction short in the history of ever that actually made me cry. (I read it in a public place, hence I lost a little dignity. It was worth it.) I reviewed the anthology from whence it came here; while you can acquire De Bodard’s novelette from other sources, I recommend checking out the whole anthology. All of its protagonists are female characters.
Other winners include Anne Leckie’s Ancillary Justice, which also won this year’s Clarke Award and BSFA Award, and Nalo Hopkinson’s Sister Mine for best young adult novel. Vylar Kaftan’s The Weight of the Sunrise won best novella and “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love” by Rachel Swirsky won best short story.
It is also worth noting that several folks of color won Nebulas this year, including two of the above-mentioned winners and Samuel R. Delany. (For the math-addled: PoC’s won roughly 1/3 of this year’s Nebula Awards.)
For. The. Win.
