Last weekend I attended the Nebula Awards in San Jose, California. To my surprise and utter delight, I returned with the Norton Award for young adult science fiction and fantasy. For Sister Mine. It's a decidedly adult novel, if you consider some of the sexual content. However, the protagonist, though adult, is only just about to make the step of living away from her family. So in that way, it's apt. You can watch the video of the Nebula proceedings here. Ellen Klages made a great MC (plus she looked amazing in her tux and cummerbund). Samuel R. Delany was given the Grand Master Award, and women swept the fiction awards, for what I think is the first time!
And someday soon, I'll stop cradling my award like it's a baby.
