Nebula Awards Showcase 2017
by Julie E. Czerneda
Series: Nebula Awards Showcase
Paperback: 336 pages
The Nebula Awards Showcase volumes have been published annually since 1966, reprinting the winning and nominated stories of the Nebula Awards, voted on by the members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). This year’s editor, selected by SFWA’s anthology Committee (chaired by Mike Resnick), is Canadian science fiction and fantasy writer and editor Julie Czerneda. This year’s Nebula Award winners are Naomi Novik, Nnedi Okorafor, Sarah Pinsker, and Alyssa Wong, with Fran Wilde winning the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy Book. Also included in this volume are works by N. K. Jemisin and Ann Leckie.
The Nebula Awards Showcase is an excellent opportunity to read top-notch short stories, novellas, and poems in the Science fiction genre. I hopscotched through the book hitting the stories that interested me until, with the exception of the Novel excerpts, I finished the book.
I suppose that my favorite part would be the “From the Author” introductions that precede each story. It’s really cool to get a little background from the author. All in all, this is a nice collection of stories and I give Nebula Showcase 2017 5 stars out of 5.
