New Nebula rules (updated)

Since I was quick enough to criticise the Nebula Preliminary Ballot that was recently released, I feel like I should be just as quick to applaud the newly published Nebula Award rules. There has been a lot of comment over the past few years about how the Nebula rules seemed to make little sense, with rolling eligibility and so on.  These new rules are a massive improvement, and as an Associate Affiliate Member I applaud them and will be nominating etc when I can be following the Awards with interest.

Note:Amended to reflect that I’m not an Associate Member, but an Affiliate one, which gets me the novelty coffee cup, but not the right to nominate/vote.
