My Single Nebula-Eligible Short Story & Eligible Works by Others
Ys

By some miracle, I have one story that's eligible for Nebula nomination. "Answer Me" was published in June 2009 in the Needles & Bones anthology from Drollerie Press. Sadly, it's not accessible for free (although I can still be persuaded to give away a copy of the PDF in exchange for a review of the collection on your blog - or, as cathschaffstump so put it: While it's not available for free, if you're really a SFWA member who's considering it for nomination, I'll get it to you).

Along more helpful lines, tithenai has made a post outlining and linking to Nebula's nomination guidelines, as well as listing eligible works by herself and others. Spread the word!

Congrats!! That is truly amazing news!
(I really must put together the time to read this anthology. It's waiting patiently on my Reader.)

Not so amazing, alas: just because I have one story eligible doesn't mean that I know enough people who have read it who are also members of the organization and therefore allowed to nominate *wry grin* Also, there are writers out there who have several stories eligible, if not a dozen, and in more widely-read publications. This is, in reality, a veritable long-shot!

Ah, true. It seems to have been a good run this year--maybe it'll surprise you!

I almost feel as if to hope for more would be selfish. But, as evidenced by this plug, hope I will ;) Original fiction is an arena in which I really need to accrue more credits. I don't mind being known primarily as a poet (far from it), but I also love writing prose, and it's a shame that when it comes to original fiction, I usually have so little to show. I'm working on it!

See my response to sheerpoetry above: actually getting nominated would be quite a long shot ;) Hence why we all plug ourselves (and each other) so earnestly!

Oh, absolutely, but it's still a very impressive thing.

Oh best of luck! *hopes and hugs*

Sadly, I'm not a member, although I desperately want to be. *pout*

I finally managed to join the SFPA, but now I've discovered the SFWA is useful, too...damn.
