This is one of my favorite times of the year to be a science fiction and fantasy writer. It’s time for members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) vote on the Nebula awards. Because I’m a voting member of SFWA, I read all the nominated novels, novellas, novelettes, and short stories. Not only is the quality of the nominated works awfully high, but this is a great way to discover intriguing authors whose work I haven’t read before, and to find out what some of my favorite authors have been up to recently. Soon will come the hard part – deciding what to vote for.

One more thing – A good number of the shorter works have been made available to read for free on the authors’ or publishers’ websites while they are up for consideration. So you don’t have to be a SFWA member to read some of these fine stories.
