2011 Nebula Awards Nominees Announced

It’s that time of year again, time for the Nebula Awards.  Well the announcement of the nominees anyway.

Every year the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America vote on the year’s best literary and dramatic works of speculative fiction.

The winners will be announced at SFWA’s 47th Annual Nebula Awards Weekend, to be held Thursday through Sunday, May 17 to May 20, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia, near Reagan National Airport. As announced earlier this year, Connie Willis will be the recipient of the 2011 Damon Knight Grand Master Award for her lifetime contributions and achievements in the field. Walter Jon Williams will preside as toastmaster, with Astronaut Michael Fincke as keynote speaker.

So without further adieu here are the nominees for the Nebula Wards, the Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation, and the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy Book.
