Congrats to Mandolin for Yet Another Nebula Award Nomination!

Mandolin’s story “Fields of Gold,” which is sadly not available online but was published in this year’s Eclipse anthology, has been nominated for a Nebula award, in the “Novelette” category.

You can read “Fields of Gold” online here. (It’s a pdf file.)

As I’m sure you’ll recall, last year Mandolin won a Nebula for her novella “The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers beneath the Queen’s Window,” making her one of the youngest ever Nebula winners.

Yay Mandolin!

    So cool. Congratulations! I was at a local con today and was DYING to get into a conversation with someone about the Nebulas so I could casually mention being acquainted with you. But it never happened.

    That would be artificial and forced. If there’s one thing I want my pathetic name-dropping in a quest for reflected glory to be, it’s organic and spontaneous. I spent hours trying to set up something organic and spontaneous, but was foiled at every turn.

    I blame the liberal media.

    So Mandolin, now that it’s clear that this crazy “writer” pipe dream just isn’t going to work out, don’t you think it’s time to find a real job? Maybe something in insurance.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Robert–you could get a button saying “Get acquainted with Nebula winners–ask me how.” ;-)

    Damn, wish I’d said something earlier. I would totally have done that. Ah well. Next year.

    I think “MSM” refers to Fox as much as it does CNNBCBSABC. It’s all biased, mostly liberal/statist but (see Fox) not all.

    That was an excellent read. Thanks for the story, Mandolin.
