The Nebula Awards Showcase 2012

Nebula Awards Showcase The Nebula Awards Showcase 2012 joins a tradition of Nebula Awards Showcase volumes, published annually since 1966, reprinting the winning and nominated stories in the Nebula Awards, voted on by the members of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America®. The editors selected by SFWA's anthology committee (chaired by Mike Resnick) are John Kessel and James Patrick Kelly, both highly acclaimed not only for their own award-winning fiction but also as co-editors of three anthologies.

"From the cover by Nebula-winning artist Michael Whelan to the very last page, this remarkable anthology is filled with the very best of the SF and fantasy published in 2010...all the inclusions are outstanding works of fiction.  

            -Publishers Weekly 

"Attesting to the high quality of contemporary imaginative fiction, this is an important tool for readers' advisory, collection development, and expanding readers' sf and fantasy horizons."

              -Library Journal


"The tales contained herein are composed of the award winners announced for 2011. Whether you come at 'speculative fiction' from the horror, fantasy, or hard-science sub-disciplines, you'll find something for everyone within these hallowed covers."

Fair Coin
"Tired of cookie-cutter young-adult novels? The cure awaits, in the shape of E.C. Myers' astounding Fair Coin--a book which, among other things, achieves the feat of seeming like a dark fairy tale and a clever science fiction epic, rolled into one. It's a fast-moving book full of twists and cool character moments, and definitely ideal for adults who miss the days of engaging, idea-driven science fiction...Just don't plan on doing anything else until you finish reading it."



Fair Coin also made I Swim for Oceans Top Ten Favourite Books of 2012 (So Far):

"Holy originality. I just adore this one."

False Covenant "False Covenant changed my status from "loyal fan" to "die-hard, I need every book Ari Marmell has ever written, obsessed-fan-girl."...This is a series not to be overlooked. It has everything a fan of fantasy could possibly want, and even those afraid to venture into high fantasy will love it. Anyone looking for a great story, check out the Widdershins Adventures novels." -What's Your Story  


Davillon faces not only a new political upheaval, but a true supernatural threat to its citizenry. The local representatives of the Church are paralyzed by infighting and their own complicity. The Guardsmen are in over their heads. And then, there's Widdershins. Along with her personal god Olgun, she may be the only real threat to the evil infesting Davillon.



Hunter and Fox


"Ballantine draws readers into a fascinating new world, peopled by characters you will genuinely care about. In this first volume of the Shifted World series, she draws from classic fantasy traditions but makes them wholly her own.... Talyn is a heroine to cheer for and treasure."

-RT Book Reviews  


"Ballantine has written a well-imagined novel, challenging in parts. She does not hold readers' hands through that world but, rather, trusts her storytelling ability and unfolds her world little by little as the novel advances."



 In a world that is in constant shifting, where mountains can change to plains and then to lakes, Talyn is the hunter for the Caisah, and a wreck of a once-proud person. She has lost her people, the Vaerli, and her soul working for the man who destroyed her people. All unknowing, she carries within her a Kindred, a chaos creature from the center of the earth that wants to help bring the Vaerli back to power.


That's it for this issue. As always, please check out our entire catalog and drop by our blog.
