  1. Dear Rebecca: Does this mean “eligible” or “nominated?” What makes a story eligible?

    I thought Safe Word was quite hair-raising!

    May the Force be with you as you bring home the prizes……..

    Genie has read two of your latest stories, and as usual thinks they are wonderful and moving.

    With all sorts of pride,

    Mama

    ________________________________

    • This means “eligible.” To be eligible for the Nebulas a story must be published for the first time in the calendar year in the United States. The Hugos are the same time frame, but worldwide. So this is just a list of all my new story publications, which happen to be eligible this year. The Nebulas are nominated and voted on by members of SFWA and the Hugos are nominated and voted on my members of WorldCon.

      Thanks, as always, for your support, and I’m glad that Genie is continuing to enjoy my work!

      Rebecca
