Some good tales... An awful lot of post apocalyptic stuff which was a bit depressing, some genuine new ideas.

Good book, but with a caveat 27 May 2014
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me state at the outset that I like the book. I gave it four stars rather than five because it has so few of the actual nominated short fiction (the three winning pieces and two of the nominated short stories, the short stories by Liu and Rambo). The last two Nebula Award Showcases (2012 and 2013) were both longer by page count and had essentially the same price as this ($17.95 and $18.00). I buy these for the short fiction and too little of that was included. The publisher, for some reason, saw fit to reduce the page count yet kept the price.

With all that in mind, I give a qualified "Buy" recommendation.

entertaining anthology 26 May 2014
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Nebula Awards Showcase 2014
Kij Johnson (editor)
Pyr, May 20 2014, $18.00
ISBN: 9781616149017

The Nebula Awards Showcase annual collection is always an entertaining anthology that provides readers with those tales selected by the by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America as the best, in this case of 2012, in the two genres. Included are the enjoyable short story winner sci fi tale “Immersion” by Aliette de Bodard and two of the other five finalists (“The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species” by Ken Liu and “Five Ways to Fall in Love on Planet Porcelain” by Cat Rambo). The Best Novelette (fascinating survivor saga of “Close Encounters” by Andy Duncan) and the Best Novella (excellent eco-thriller “After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall” by Nancy Kress) are strong entries. Fans will read excerpts from the Best Novel (taut terraforming “2312” by Kim Stanley Robinson) and the eerie winner of the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy (“Fair Coin” by E.C. Myers). Finally the great Gene Wolf received the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master recognition; with his short story “Christmas Inn” and two essays paying homage to this superstar by Michael Dirda and Neil Gaiman added to the anthology. Rounding out the compilation are 2012 Rhysling Awards, Best Short Poem (“The Library, After” by Shira Lipkin) and Best Long Poem (“The Curator Speaks In The Department of Dead Languages” by Megan Arkenberg); and the 2012 Dwarf Stars Award went to Marge Simon for “Blue Rose Buddha”. With a list of past winners as well, this is a great book though I personally would prefer more of the complete shorter works that many of us do not get a chance to read rather than extracts from the longer winners.

Always enjoyable to meet the Nebula Awards winners. The introductions and comments are cogent, urbane, and helpful. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the literature of the fantastic.

Hey, if you don't want to take the time to read several full novels, just buy this. It'll get you interested in some scifi fantasy, as well. Just do it. You won't regret it.
