I turned 54 years old today. And as a birthday present to me, just as it does every year, the Science Fiction Writers of America gave out the 52nd Annual Nebula Awards. This year they were presented at the SFWA Nebula Conference in Pittsburgh, PA, at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center.

Unlike the last 2015 and 2016 events (which were held in Chicago), I was unable to attend, but they somehow went on without me. Here’s the complete list of winners.


The Stone Sky, N.K. Jemisin (Orbit)


All Systems Red, Martha Wells ( Publishing)


“A Human Stain,” Kelly Robson (, January 4, 2017)

Short Story

“Welcome to Your Authentic Indian ExperienceTM“, Rebecca Roanhorse (Apex 8/17)

Get Out

Andrew Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy

You can see the complete list of nominees here.

We reported on last year’s winners here (and my report on the 2016 Nebula Awards weekend is here).

Read complete details on this year’s award recipients at the SFWA Nebula Awards web page.

Congratulations to all the winners!


  1. Happy Birthday, John, hope you did something special on the anniversary of your birth.

    Sometimes I feel I’m losing touch with SFF. I’ve read none of the nominees, let alone the winners, this year, nor last year. It seems when I read the genre – I also read a lot of mystery fiction – it’s older things. Just now I’m reading C.J. Cherryh’s Chanur saga, the first book of which was published in 1981. I guess I’m getting old and set in my “old stuff” ways.

  2. Except for Martha Wells, I couldn’t finish any of them. It’s almost like SF has lost its spark.

  3. I really, really liked N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy and will be pleased if she can get a third Hugo this year. Also very much enjoyed Martha Wells’ All Systems Red. Haven’t read the shorter fiction nominees yet, but am hoping they’ll be in my Hugo packet.

    And very happy to see the award to Peter Beagle.
