Woot! It’s the Nebula Awards!

The nominations have been announced, and it’s a kick to see how many of the Norton (YA) nominees I’ve either read or heard good stuff about:

ANDRE NORTON AWARD NOMINEES, for the Nebula Awards, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America 2009:

Hotel Under the Sand, Kage Baker (Tachyon, Jul 09)
Ice, Sarah Beth Durst (Simon and Schuster, Oct 09)
Ash, Malinda Lo (Little, Brown and Company, Sep 09)
Eyes Like Stars, Lisa Mantchev (Feiwel and Friends, Jul 09)
Zoe’s Tale, John Scalzi (Tor Aug 08)
When You Reach Me, by Rebecca Stead (Wendy Lamb Books, 2009)
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making, Catherynne M. Valente (Catherynne M. Valente, Jun 09)
Leviathan, Scott Westerfeld (Simon, Oct 09)

I’m sad, sad, sad about Kage Baker, but I’m so glad there’s one more book of hers I’ve never read. Can’t wait to get my hands on that one. Meanwhile, good luck to our nominees! It’s hard to even say who I want to win, because the list is just so stuffed full of awesome. Wow.

About the author

tanita s. davis is a writer and avid reader who prefers books to most things in the world, including people. That's ...pretty much it, she's very boring and she can't even tell jokes. She is, however, the author of eight books, including Serena Says, Partly Cloudy, and the Coretta Scott King honored Mare's War. Look for the new MG, Go Figure, Henri Weldon in 9/2022 from Katherine Tegen Books.
