Nick Mamatas on the Nebula Awards
The winners of the Nebula Awards have been announced - it was a diverse list of nominees that included Amal El-Mohtar, Ted Chiang and N.K. Jemisin, and Apex Book of World SF series contributors Aliette de Bodard, Shweta Narayan and Nnedi Okorafor.
There have been various comments made about the eventual winners, most outspoken of whom was Nick Mamatas, who commented, sarcastically, that
“At least SFWA managed to, for the most part, hold back the tide of black and brown people on the nominating ballot.”
What do you think? Is Mamatas right? Is he wrong? As always, we welcome discussion.
