2006 Nebula Award Winners

Here they are:

Camouflage, Joe Haldeman (Analog; Ace Books)
"Magic for Beginners", Kelly Link (Magic for Beginners Small Beer Press; F&SF Sep 2005)
"The Faery Handbag", Kelly Link (The Faery Reel Viking; ed. Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling)

"I Live With You", Carol Emshwiller (F&SF Mar 2005)
Serenity, Joss Whedon

Valiant: A Modern Tale of Faerie, Holly Black (Simon & Schuster)
As previously announced, Harlan Ellison was presented the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award, and William F. Nolan was named Author Emeritus. Connie Willis was Toastmaster.
For a while I read every bit of Haldeman I could get my hands on and I'll be headinng to the bookstore at lunch time today to pick up a copy of this one.

Harlan Ellison, in the picture on the Locus site (link above), definitely looks like he's gone a bit past emeritus.

Yes! Serenity, my favorite movie of 2005 received the Nebula for best script!

Via Amy Sturgis at Liberty & Power. She has a couple link about why some of you might care that Serenity is a winner. Warning: the movie review she links to is written by Orson Scott Card whose Ender's Game series is one I still reread but whose views on social issues and politics are pretty broken.
