Nebula Award

The Nebula Awards ® are voted on, and presented by, active members of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc. (SWFA) In addition to the award for the best novel, novella, novelette, and short story each year, the SFWA also votes on the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy, which I have listed separately here.

The award winners that I have read so far have almost all been superb and I’ve always liked how inclusive the Nebula Award is. Maybe that is, in part, why I like it better than the Hugo – which is a gamble when it comes to recommendations.
