The Nebula Awards are one of the most prominent awards given for science fiction and fantasy literature each year. The Nebulas were first given out in 1965, and have been an annual event ever since. Unlike many other literary awards, which are nominated and voted upon by either readers or critics, the only people who can nominate and vote in Nebula balloting are authors who are members of The Science Fiction Writers of America. Each year, those members are encouraged to nominate the best science fiction or fantasy works in the categories of Novel, Novella, Novelette and Short Story. [Beginning in 1999, an additional category was added for "Best Script".] Although this list includes only the winners in the "Novel" category, information about all of the categories can be found at this Nebula Award site. The Nebula Awards are traditionally presented at the Nebula Weekend, usually held in May of each year. NOTE: The titles in this list are "hotlinked" to the library's catalog, for all those titles currently owned by the Lincoln City Libraries. Several of the earlier Nebula-winning novels have gone out of print and are no longer in our collection.For Science Fiction and Fantasy awards, please also see our Hugo award winners booklist, recognizing SF/F books selected as the best each year by fans.
