2010 Nebula Short Story Nominations
I had already covered:
- “How Interesting: A Tiny Man” by Harlan Ellison (Realms of Fantasy 2/10) (link to note)
- “Ponies” by Kij Johnson (Tor.com 1/17/10) (link to note) – The strongest of these three.
- “I’m Alive, I Love You, I’ll See You in Reno” by Vylar Kaftan (Lightspeed Magazine 6/10) (link to note)
“Arvies” by Adam-Troy Castro (Lightspeed Magazine 8/10) – I started reading this previously. I imagine that I didn’t finish because I have to be in the mood for science-philosophy. This is my pick to win.
“The Green Book” by Amal El-Mohtar (Apex Magazine 11/1/10) – More fantasy than sci-fi. Lovely, but maybe lacking enough teeth.
“Ghosts of New York” by Jennifer Pelland (Dark Faith) – This pushes all my buttons. My favorite of the bunch.
“Conditional Love” by Felicity Shoulders (Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine 1/10) – Listened to it via Escape Pod. Not my preferred method of consuming fiction, but I’m glad I did. This is the most solid story of the bunch.
