The 2016 Nebulas were presented by the Science Fiction Writers of America at the 52nd Annual Nebula Awards Weekend on Saturday, May 20th, at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center in Pennsylvania.

Unlike the last two events (which were held in Chicago), I was unable to attend this year, which I regret. But somehow they went on without me, and gave out Nebula Awards anyway. Here’s the complete list of winners.


All the Birds in the Sky, Charlie Jane Anders (Tor Books)


Every Heart a Doorway, Seanan McGuire ( Publishing)


“The Long Fall Up,” William Ledbetter (F&SF , May-June 2016)

If all this excitement has you interested in sampling recent Nebula Award-winning fiction, there’s no better place than in the just-released Nebula Awards Showcase 2017, edited by Julie E. Czerneda, which collects all of last year’s winning short fiction.
