Nebula AwardsAncillary JusticeThe 2013 Nebula Awards were announced last night at the Forty-Ninth Nebula Awards Weekend in San Jose, CA, hosted by the SWFA. The winner for best novel is Anne Leckie’s Ancillary Justice. The other nominees were:

Congrats to Anne and all the nominees. This was one hell of a good nominees list.  You can see the complete list of winners in all categories on the SFWA site.

Ancillary Justice has been nominated for five major awards and has already won the 2013 BSFA and the 2014 Clarke and is still in the running for the 2014 Hugo. That’s 3 out of 4 so far. Very impressive. Can she go 4 out of 5 with the Hugo? What do you think of this result? With all those noms it can’t be much of a surprise. Anything on the ballot that you would have preferred to have won?

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?
