The prestigious Nebula Awards are the Oscars of science fiction and fantasy, the only SF awards bestowed annually by the writers' own demanding peers, the Science-fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Just as the Nebula Awards honor only the finest science ficiton and fantasy, the Nebula Awards series showcases only the best of the ballot, offering as well fiction and nonfiction not collected elsewhere and a dazzling selection of essays written expressley for each volume. No other best-of-year anthology represents the achievement of the Nebula Awards so well. Nebula Awards 31 is, as Publishers Weekly said of a previous volume, "essential reading for anyone who enjoys science fiction."

About the Author:

Pamela Sargent (born March 20, 1948) is an American, feminist, science fiction author, and editor. She has an MA in classical philosophy and has won a Nebula Award. She wrote a series concerning the terraforming of Venus that is sometimes compared to Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy, but predates it. She also edited various anthologies to celebrate the contributions of women in the history of science fiction. She is noted for writing alternate history stories. Sargent has attempted work with a wide variety of themes in general, if not always successfully. She also collaborated with George Zebrowski and on numerous Star Trek novels.

From Kirkus Reviews:

The Nebula Awards of 1995, as voted by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The winners, Esther M. Friesner's ``Death and the Librarian'' (Best Short Story), Ursula K. Le Guin's ``Solitude'' (Best Novelette), and Elizabeth Hand's ``Last Summer at Mars Hill'' (Best Novella), appear, along with a selection of ballot finalists (from Kelley Eskridge, James Patrick Kelly, Maureen F. McHugh, Dale Bailey, Robert J. Sawyer--his The Terminal Experiment captured the Best Novel award--and Lisa Goldstein). Also included are Rhysling Award (poetry) winners David Lunde and Dan Raphael. Harlan Ellison and Charles L. Harness enthuse over Grandmaster Award winner A.E. van Vogt, who contributes the excellent ``The Enchanted Village.'' Paul Di Filippo, Nancy Springer, Judith Moffett, Ian Watson, Robert Silverberg, and Michaela Roessner provide overviews; Ian Watson, Jack Dann, and Jack C. Haldeman III memorialize the late John Brunner and Roger Zelazny; Kathi Maio examines 1995's movies; and Gregory Benford furnishes a splendid autobiographical essay. Fine fiction along with valuable insights: another excellent compendium. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
