The Preliminary Nebula Ballot is out, and Andy Duncan’s “Unique Chicken Goes in Reverse” is on it! I’m delighted. I loved all of the stories in the book, and look forward to seeing them on awards ballots all year long, but I’m dead chuffed with this firs step. I’ve got my fingers crossed it makes the final ballot and on. I’m also very pleased that Eclipse-alum Ysabeau Wilce is on the Norton ballot for her novel Flora Segunda. My congratulations to everyone on the ballot, but extra special congratulations to these too.
