Overview

The latest edition of the Nebula Awards series, now in its 34th year, edited by Gregory Benford.

The Nebula Awards are the Academy Awards of science fiction: the finest works in the genre each year as voted by the members of SFWA, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Nebula Awards Showcase 2000 is a thought-provoking and entertaining volume of and about science fiction. Editor Gregory Benford speaks of the interaction between science fiction and science over the past century; editors and authors Jonathan Lethem, Gordon Van Gelder, George Zebrowski, David Hartwell, and Bill Warren discuss-and disagree about-science fiction's place in the larger literary scene; authors William Tenn and Hal Clement are honored; and award-winning stories are presented by Sheila Finch, Jane Yolen, Bruce Holland Rogers, Joe Haldeman (an excerpt from his novel Forever Peace), Geoffrey A. Landis, Walter Jon Williams, and Mark J. McGarry.

About the Author:

Gregory Benford is the author of more than a dozen critically acclaimed novels, including the Nebula Award-winning Timescape, which also won a John W. Clark Award. A professor of physics at the University of California at Irvine, Dr. Benford is the recipient of the United Nations Medal in Literature. He lives with his wife in Laguna Beach, California.

Editorial Reviews

NY Times Book Review
A good way to take the pulse of modern science fiction.
KLIATT
This compilation includes the 1998 Nebula Award-winning novella, Reading the Bones by Sheila Finch, the novelette "Lost Girls" by Jane Yolen, the short story "Thirteen Ways to Water" by Bruce Holland Rogers, and a novel excerpt, "Forever Peace," by Joe Halderman. It also includes essays discussing SF's literary role, some of the other novelettes and short stories from the final ballot, the Rhysling Award-winning poems, William Tenn's acceptance speech as author emeritus, and one of Hal Clement's early stories (he was the winner of the Grand Master Award). Obviously, some of the best new SF writing is compiled here. The inclusion of the discussion on SF's literary role is unfortunate for teen readers, since it is esoteric, dry, and confusing. The same can be said of Benford's introduction. And, as always, some readers will conclude (as I did) that at least one of the runner-ups was better than the winner. The appended list of past Nebula winners makes a good reading list for teens just getting into KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Harcourt, 288p, 23cm, 83-647399, $14.00. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Sherry S. Hoy; Libn., Tuscarora Jr. H.S., Mifflintown, PA, July 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 4)
Internet Bookwatch
Nebula Awards Showcase presents the special picks of notable science fiction authors and award-winners who have banded together to present their own choices for 'best' science fiction and fantasy. Jane Yolen's 'Lost Girls', about a child transported to a world of Wendys and unfair Peter Pans, a man's special sacrifice for aliens in Finch's 'Reading the Bones', and others present a satisfyingly diverse showcase of fresh, innovative stories.
