Since the Nebula Awards will be held in NYC, practically our backyard, we're planning on attending the awards and bringing back coverage. The Nebulas are given each year by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA), for the best SF&F published in the US during the previous two years. It has a more professional vibe than the Hugos, and the reward is a bit of fame and the acknowledgment of ones peers. We'll be there covering it and bring back a report next month. - Ernest
