And Now, the Winners of the 2013 Nebula Awards...
Over the weekend, The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America held their forty-eighth annual Nebula Awards, which includes the Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation and the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy Books.
Previous Nebula and Hugo winner Kim Stanley Robinson took home the Best Novel prize for his latest 2312, which deals with Earth's colonization of the solar system and "a sequence of events will force humanity to confront its past, its present, and its future." (via Amazon)
