2015 Nebula Awards

N is for Nebula. In 1965 the Science Fiction Writers of America was founded by Sci-Fi author Damon Knight. The organisation originally began with a membership of only 78 writers and has grown since.

This years 50th Nebula Awards are being held in Chicago, Illinois beginning on  June 4th right through to the 7th  2015. The cost to attend is $70. If you're interested why not register? Writer's will likely geek out at their website which is a non profit enterprise full of helpful writer resources.

Each year the Nebula Awards are voted on and presented by "active members" of the science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

Today SFWA is home to over 1,800 members, authors, artists and allied professionals. Many of them are leading writers of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Unlike the Hugos, the Nebulas take place every year for the best Sci Fi or Fantasy fiction published the previous year. Categories include Novel, Novella, Novelette and Short Story.

Who would you like to nominate for a Nebula?

Are you Star Trekking across to the nebulas this year? 
Will you be booking a room this year? 
Live Long and Prosper, trekkers.

That reminds me that I still need to join the SFWA...

Jeremy Hawkins said...

It sounds like a place I should be... a place I have never been before.

Lisa said...

I'd definitely vote Alex in for a Nebula! Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @

David P. King said...

At least the Nebula isn't tainted by what's going on with the Hugos lately. Or so we hope. Yeesh. :)

Susan Kane said...

Oddly enough, we will be visiting our son in Chicago in two weeks. It would be interesting, though.

Tony Laplume said...

My awareness of these awards is nebulous.

Jeffrey Scott said...

Chicago huh? That's practically right next door. Maybe I'll check it out.

Jo said...

I would love to go to one of these things. The Aussies are big on them. Unlikely to happen unfortunately.

Stephen Tremp said...

It’s officially the second half of A to Z. Time to catch that second wind, rest up on Sunday, then it’s that mad dash toward the finish line!

Elephant's Child said...

I would love to go. Not going to be a happening thing though.

Lynda R Young said...

If only I lived close enough to attend!

Birgit said...

Very cool award and it would be cool to attend

Spacerguy said...

Go for it Alex!

Yeah Jeremy, I know what you mean.

One for all, all for one, Lisa!

Crumbs I wasn't aware of that, David.

The organisers have everything laid on for a fun and memorable occasion. Enjoy yourself Susan.

You nebulous Tony, no way!

Nothing ventured, nothing gained Jeffrey.

You can always change your mind Jo.

We're all racing towards the border, Stephen.

Its a happening place, Elephants Child. Someday perhaps eh?

Maybe we can beam you in Lynda, hehe.

Totally Birgid, make it so!

Life SPW said...

I'm a fellow A to Z-er and a Trekkie by marriage just passing through. Good luck with the rest of the challenge.

Beth Ellyn Summer said...

$70 isn't bad at all, I know plenty of people who would love to go!
