Congratulations to Mandolin on being nominated for a Nebula award, for her 2014 novella Grand Jeté (The Great Leap), published under her meatworld name “Rachel Swirksy.” You can read the novella here, and read Brit Mandelo’s review of it here.
Incredibly, this is Mandolin’s sixth consecutive Nebula nomination. She has won twice in the past, for her novella The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers beneath the Queen’s Window, and last year for her short story If You Were A Dinosaur, My Love.

Congratulations, mandolin! Every time a writer writes, they put a little piece of their soul into it – if it’s any good. It must be very gratifying to see it recognized.
Congratulations, Mandolin! I’m proud to know you.
Another heart-breaker of a story. Wonderful work.
That story was so very good. You really made it work; gah, empathy.
