I’m so thrilled to announce that my novelette “Burn or the Episodic Life of Sam Wells as a Super” which was originally published in Uncanny Magazine, is a finalist for the 2020 Nebula Award!
The finalists were announced last night by having SAG/AFTRA professional audiobook narrators do one minute reading of all the nominated works. It was really cool! Check out the video. (“Burn” starts around the 21:26 mark.)
If you’re wondering what the Nebula Awards are, they’re like the Golden Globes for science fiction and fantasy writers. Every year members of the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) nominate works in several categories and vote on the final ballot. There’s a conference and an awards ceremony on the weekend of June 4th-6th. Like last year, the conference and ceremony will be online.
Here’s the full list of nominees.
The winners will be announced on June 5th, 2021.
I know I’ve said this in the past, but it’s still true. I’m so honored to have this story as a finalist among such good writers and their amazing work.
