I see the 2006 Preliminary Nebula Award Ballot is out over at SFWA. Somehow I managed to miss most of the nominated pieces. How did that happen? On the bright side, I have a lot of fun reading ahead of me.
But what I really wanted to say was the publication venue of the short stories are surprising. Sure, there are 3 from F&SF, but there's also one from Strange Horizons, and one from SCI FICTION. There are also venues I'm not familiar with such as Helix and Subterranean. I think this bodes very well for an up-and-coming ezine like Electric Spec.
What would you nominate for best spec fic of the year?
