2012 Nebula Award Nominees: Novel and Novella

A couple of days ago, I posted the Nebula Award nominees in the novelette and short story categories.  While the novel and novella categories are of interest to me,  I didn’t post them because I doubt I’ll vote on these categories—I’ve not read many things longer than the average short story/novelette this year, and I doubt I’ll have time to read all the novel and novella nominees before voting closes on March 30th.  I’d would like to recognize them, however, so here are the nominees for best novel and novella.

Best Novel:

         • Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed
         • Ironskin by Tina Connolly
         • The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin
         • The Drowning Girl by Caitlín R. Kiernan
         • Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal
         • 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson

Best Novella:

         • On a Red Station, Drifting, Aliette de Bodard (Immersion Press)
         • After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall, Nancy Kress (Tachyon)
         • “The Stars Do Not Lie,” Jay Lake (Asimov’s)
         • All the Flavors,” Ken Liu (GigaNotoSaurus)
         • “Katabasis,” Robert Reed (Fantasy & Science Fiction)
         • Barry’s Tale,” Lawrence M. Schoen (Buffalito Buffet)

Congratulations to all of the nominees.  If you haven’t read them all yet, I recommend you buy them and read them.  I know they will be going on my ever-expanding “to read” list.
