The winners are an impressive list this year:
- NOVEL: The Yiddish Policemen's Union, Michael Chabon
- NOVELLA: "Fountain of Age", Nancy Kress
- NOVELETTE: "The Merchant and the Alchemist's Gate", Ted Chiang
- SHORT STORY: "Always", Karen Joy Fowler
- SCRIPT: Pan's Labyrinth, Guillermo del Toro
- ANDRE NORTON AWARD: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling
SFWA has decisively shown that the claim that they never give awards to "outsiders" is untrue -- Chabon isn't quite an outsider, but Rowling definitely is. And Ted Chiang is now 4-for-4 on Nebula nominations; is that anyone's best record ever?
One other question, since I can't google quite the right collection of words: was Pan's Labyrinth one of the scripts available for SFWAns to read online?
(In related news, SFWA has also announced the results of this year's leadership election. The most important thing to note is that Andrew Burt lost.)
