Nebula Awards Winners
Winners of this year's Nebula Awards, presented by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, were announced this evening, Saturday April 26, 2008, in Austin, Texas. The SFWA News page has a photograph of the winners.
As previously announced, Michael Moorcock was presented the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award, and Melisa Michaels and Graham P. Collins were presented with SFWA Service Awards.
These are first Nebula Award wins for Michael Chabon and Guillermo del Toro. Nancy Kress has won three times previously, most recently for "The Flowers of Aulit Prison" in 1988; Ted Chiang has also won three times previously, most recently for "Hell is the Absence of God" in 2003 -- in fact, Chiang has now won the Nebula all four times that he has been nominated; and Karen Joy Fowler won the award once before, in 2004 for short story "What I Didn't See".
J.K. Rowling has never been nominated for an SFWA Award previously; this is her first win, for this third year of SFWA's Andre Norton Award, created to honor young adult SF/F novels and named in honor of the late SFWA Grand Master.
