The Nebula Awards will be announced May 19, 2018. The awards are given by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. This post is about the novelette category. Nominees in other categories — short stories, novellas, and novels — will be addressed in other posts.
I read all of the novelettes that have been nominated for a Nebula Award. The Nebulas define a work of fiction as a novelette if it is between 7,500 and 17,500 words. Think of them as “long short stories.” Because they are so short (and because our site does not usually review individual short stories, even longer short stories), I have written mini-reviews for each nominee. I’m also going to give you my vote for which story I think should win and my prediction for which story I think will win. I’d encourage you to read them all as they represent a variety of styles in the speculative fiction field.
