And this year’s Nebula for short story goes to…
I’m thrilled to announce that our own Mandolin has won this year’s Nebula award for short story, for her heartbreaking story “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love.”
That’s not Mandolin’s award in the photo – it’s Robert Sawyer’s 1995 trophy for The Terminal Experiment. But I wanted to post a photo of what a Nebula Trophy looks like because I think they are the single most beautiful trophy that anyone could win. The trophy, which is handmade, is a transparent Lucite block embedded with glitter and polished rocks set to resemble planets and a spiral galaxy; and, like unhappy families, no two Nebula trophies are identical.
This is Mandolin’s second Nebula win. She previously won a Nebula in 2011 for her novella “The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath the Queen’s Window.“
