2016 Nebula Awards Shortlists


The world famous Nebula Awards are perhaps the most prestigious of Science Fiction awards on the planet.

The inaugural winner of the Best Novel award, back in 1966, was none other than Frank Herbert’s Dune. Some of the notable winners since include some absolute masters of the genre. Isaac Asimov, Ursula Le Guin, Arthur C. Clarke, the list of Best Novel winners is a who’s who of Science Fiction in the last 50 years.
