The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America are pleased to announce the 2014 Nebula Awards winners (presented 2015), as well as the honorees for the Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation, and the winners for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy.
This year’s Nebula Awards Showcase took place from June 4 to 7 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago and was hosted by toastmaster Nick Offerman, who presumably taught the crowd how to fashion a sturdy canoe from their event program before departing in a stern cloud of whiskey musk.
Congratulations to all of the nominees! Your canoes look great.
Winners are in bold.
