The Nebula Awards Showcase volumes have been published annually since 1966, reprinting the winning and nominated stories of the Nebula Awards, voted on by the members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). This year’s editor, selected by SFWA’s anthology Committee (chaired by Mike Resnick), is Canadian science fiction and fantasy writer and editor Julie Czerneda. This year’s Nebula Award winners are Naomi Novik, Nnedi Okorafor, Sarah Pinsker, and Alyssa Wong, with Fran Wilde winning the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy Book. Also included in this volume are works by N. K. Jemisin and Ann Leckie.


“Nearly every story, essay, and excerpt featured here is demonstrative of speculative fiction at its very best.”

“Each of these tales offers something compelling and the collection will appeal to a wide range of tastes.”
Publishers Weekly

“The main sense we come away with is that the line between genre and literary fiction is increasingly arbitrary.”
Chicago Tribune

“Excels at showing the breadth of modern science fiction.”
Portland Book Review

“There is not a story in the bunch that is not engaging to the reader…. An excellent book for lovers of science fiction.”
