The 2016 Nebula Awards were announced yesterday by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, and we’re incredibly proud to have so many great books on the ballot from our first full year of publishing. Tor.com Publishing earned seven nominations for our novellas, novelettes, and short stories, and we want to congratulate all of our nominated authors for this recognition of their excellent work!
Two of our Lovecraftian reads, The Ballad of Black Tom by Victor LaValle and The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe by Kij Johnson, made the list for Best Novella, as did Kai Ashante Wilson’s epic fantasy romance A Taste of Honey, S.B. Divya’s near-future cyberpunk thriller Runtime, and Seanan McGuire’s widely beloved Every Heart a Doorway—the first in her Wayward Children series, which continues with Down Among the Sticks and Bones this June. Fran Wilde’s The Jewel and Her Lapidary, a lush, poetic tale of singing gemstones, also earned a nomination for Best Novelette, and Alyssa Wong’s “A Fist of Permutations in Lightning and Wildflowers,” which you can read for free right now on Tor.com, is nominated for Best Short Story.
Congratulations to all of our Nebula Award-nominated authors, and to everyone who made this year’s Nebula Awards ballot!
