De Bodard, Narayan, Okorafor up for Nebula Award

The Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) have just announced the nominated works for their annual Nebula Awards. French author, and Apex Book of World SF contributor Aliette de Bodard is nominated for Best Novelette, with “The Jaguar House, in Shadow”, from Asimov’s, while the forthcoming Apex Book of World SF 2 Indian contributor Shweta Narayan is also nominated for Best Novelette, with “Pishaach” from the Beastly Bride anthology. And Apex Book of World SF 2 contributor, Nigerian-American writer Nnedi Okorafor, is nominated for her novel Who Fears Death.

The Apex Book of World SF 2 will be published later this year.

In addition, huge congratulations are due to our publishers, Apex Book Company, for having two stories on the ballot this year: Lebanese-Canadian writer Amal El-Mohtar‘s “The Green Book” (published at Apex Online) is up for Best Short Story, alongside Jennifer Peland‘s “Ghosts of New York” (published in Apex anthology Dark Faith).

This is probably the most diverse short-list in the award’s recent history – congratulations to all the nominees and to the SFWA!

  1. I think it’s fair to include Christopher Kastensmidt’s novelette “The Fortuitous Meeting of Gerard Van Oost and Oludara” to the list of “world sf” authors on the Nebula list. Chris is American, but lives in Brazil.
