The NebulaPosted: December 15, 2011
The Nebula awards are given by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (www.sfwa.org). The focus is very similar to the Hugo, but it is not as international in scope. The first winner was Herbert’s Dune. Similarly to the Hugo, the Nebula is a nomination process and authors/publishers cannot submit their work. There is a recommended reading list for members, but it may or may not include all nominees. What happens after nominations was not immediately clear from the public portion of the website. The awards are given for: Short Stories, Novellas, Novels, Screen plays and Young Adult Categories. There is also the Ray Bradbury Award for portrayal, and a life-time achievement award called the Grand Master award.
