Hugo and Nebula Award Finalists

On February 20, 2018, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) released the finalists for the Nebula awards for 2017 works.  The awards will be announced at this year’s Nebula conference on May 20, 2018.  On March 31, 2018,  the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS) released the finalists for the 2018 Hugo Awards.  The awards will be presented at WorldCon 76 on August 19, 2018.  I greeted this information with delight and have been gleefully reading through the works since then.

I’ve listed the works below, with links so that you can read them.  The short stories and novelettes have links to read them online, the novellas and novels have links to where you can buy them from Amazon.

In addition, I will be posting my comments on these works.  I’m calling them reviews; however, I don’t claim that they will read like a review found in a paid magazine, newspaper or online.  I will give the basic information expected in a review, but it will be distinctly from my point of view.  I don’t claim to be able to determine the “quality” or “worthiness” of a piece; I’ll be giving my purely personal comments.  Actually, any honest reviewer will admit that they do the same.

Once everything is posted, I’ll put up a separate post to link all the reviews together.  Finally, I’ll post the winners of the two sets of awards once I know them.

Enjoy your reading!
