Editorial Reviews

Gary K. Wolfe
As always, the annual Nebula Awards anthologyis something of a treat....Nebula, as a kind of community award, provides a unique window for assessing the state of the art. —Locus: the Newspaper of the Science Fiction Field
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The latest collection of trophy-winners and runners-up for the Nebulas, which are awarded by the SFWA, is a rainbow of styles and content. Editor Willis (Bellwether), herself a six-time Nebula winner, introduces each selection with an enthusiastic appreciation. Each story is followed by the author's notes on its creation. There are also insightful short essays on the year's science as well as its fiction by expert authors and editors, plus older stories by 1997's Author Emeritus Nelson Bond and Grand Master Poul Anderson, the latter contributing a fine space yarn with a Platonic drama of ideas and a knockout surprise ending. The prose ranges from the futuristic lighting of Michael Swanwick ("The chauffeur wore combat-grade photomultipliers") to the gracefully mythopoeic style of Vonda McIntyre ("The wild eerie melody quickened Marie-Jos phe's heart"). All the fiction entries are richly imagined; some are polished literary constructions as well. Karen Joy Fowler is represented by a deft experimental conflation of historical Elizabeths, including Borden, Cady-Stanton and one of the queens, and there is a little of the expected "hard" SF, too. Gregory Feeley's "The Crab Lice" is one of several pieces that wonderfully illuminate present events by imagined ones in the past instead of the more typical SF sallies into the future. Feeley shows us Aristophanes at loggerheads with the god Dionyos; Jane Yolen gives us Emily Dickinson chatting with an extraterrestrial. Overall, this is an excellent skimming of the current SF crop, conveying a good sense of the field's variety, sophistication and breadth.
Library Journal
This eclectic sampling of 1997's best short stories, novellas, and novels was chosen by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Editor Willis, a multiple Nebula winner, provides amusing and insightful commentary on the selections, which include works by Jane Yolen, Vonda N. McIntyre, James Alan Gardner, and Nancy Kress. Subject matter runs the gamut from Aristophanes to Emily Dickinson, medieval inquisitions to moon shots. The slim volume also contains a list of previous winners, tributes to Grand Master Poul Anderson and Author Emeritus Nelson Bond, and reflections on 1997 by several well-known sf authors. While a bit of a hodgepodge, this anthology includes excellent stories and should appeal to sf fans. Recommended for large public and academic libraries.--Laurel Bliss, New Haven, CT

Kirkus Reviews
Nebula's 1997 award-winners and ballot finalists are presented by Willis, who takes over from last year's editor, Jack Dann. Representing Best Novel, there's an excerpt from Vonda N. McIntyre's splendid historical fantasy, The Moon and the Stars, while Jerry Oltion's ghostly Apollo capsule, "Abandon in Place," wins Best Novella, and "The Flowers of Aulit Prison," Nancy Kress's investigation of crime, society, and reality, has captured Best Novelette. The Best Short Story Award goes to "Sister Emily's Lightship" from Jane Yolen. Also on show are impressive finalist yarns from James Patrick Kelly, Michael Swanwick, Gregory Feely, James Alan Gardner, and Karen Joy Fowler. The Rhysling Award Winners (for poetry) are W. Gregory Stewart and Terry A. Garey. Nelson Bond, represented by his story "The Bookshop," has accepted Author Emeritus status (you're forgiven if you've never heard of him). And Poul Anderson, virtuoso of short- and mid-length fiction—his typically brilliant "The Martyr" appears here—thoroughly deserves his Grand Master Award. Nonfiction enthusiasts, however, are in for a thumping disappointment. Maybe somebody decided that last year's opinionated and thoroughly refreshing growls and hisses Simply Wouldn't Do. But for whatever reason, 1997's nonfiction is just anodyne scraps (the redoubtable Kim Stanley Robinson honorably excepted). No obituaries appear, despite the passing of Jerome Bixby (author of several all-time great short stories, plus a couple of the finest Star Trek scripts), of innovative editor/writer Judith Merrill, and of Australia's greatest (and vastly underrated) SF novelist, George Turner. Even BillWarren's eagerly anticipated dissection of the year's movies has been ditched. Terrific fiction, a Bronx cheer for the nonfiction.
