We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves The Ocean at the End of the Lane Fire with Fire Hild Ancillary Justice The Red: First Light A Stranger in Olondria The Golem and the Jinni

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America have announces the 2013 Nebula Awards nominees! The noms in the Best Novel category are:

The winners will be announced during the 49th Annual Nebula Awards Weekend will be held May 15-18th, 2014, in San Jose at the San Jose Marriott. The Awards Ceremony will be hosted by Toastmaster Ellen Klages.  Check out the official press release for full details and the complete list of noms in all categories.

This ballot’s got a lot of variety and continues a recent trend in the Nebulas having a female majority of noms:  6 of 8 for 2013, 4 of 6 2012, 4 of 6 2011 and 5 of 6 for 2010.  Interesting.  Ancillary Justice has the most award nominations out of these book (3 so far) so I guess that makes it the front runner.  What are your predictions?  Do you have a favorite?

Finally! I already read Ancillary Justice and The Ocean at the End of the Lane and already had We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, Hild, and The Golem and the Jinni on my TBR list. Now, to see if I can squeeze any of these into my pile of books to be read for Challenges.

I’ve read the Gaiman. It is typical Gaiman but not as good as American Gods or Anasi Boys. I have the Golem and Jinni on my TBR shelf. I’ll read it soon. I’m very excited to be introduced to Sofia Samatar. I’ve added her to my RYO: Authors of Color challenge. I also plan to read Hild because I’ve read so much complementary about Nicola Griffith of late and I’ve never read anything by her.

Nice variety. Am I the only one who has never heard of Charles Gannon?

I’ve never heard of him either. The novel mentioned on his bio page, 1635, also sounds interesting.
