2014 Nebula Nominees: Novel and Novella

Too long ago, I posted the Nebula Award nominees in the novelette and short story categories, and I promised to post the novel and novella nominees soon.  Hmm . . . .  This isn’t exactly soon, but here they are, as announced by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) in February:

Best Novel:

“XXX” The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
“XXX” • Trial by Fire by Charles E. Gannon
“XXX” • Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie
“XXX” • The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu (translated by Ken Liu)
“XXX” • Coming Home by Jack McDevitt
“XXX” • Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer

Best Novella:

“XXX” • “We Are All Completely Fine” by Daryl Gregory
“XXX” • “Yesterday’s Kin, Nancy Kress
“XXX” • “The Regular” by Ken Liu
“XXX” • “The Mothers of Voorhisville,” Mary Rickert
“XXX” • “Calendrical Regression” by Lawrence Schoen
“XXX” • “Grand Jeté (The Great Leap)” by Rachel Swirsky

While I’m interested in longer works, I don’t read many novels these days because of other time commitments.  I’m also a woefully slow reader, so I’d never have time to read them all before the voting deadline (March 30).  Even so, I’d congratulate to all of the nominees and I hope to have more time in the future—when I retire?—to catch up on the wonderful books I’ve missed.
