For the BETA: Games category, eligibility of recommendations cannot be verified until rules for the Game Writing Award have been finalized by the Game Writing Committee and the SFWA Award Rules Committee, and passed by the SFWA Board.
Nebula Reading List
The Nebula Awards Suggested Reading List is produced through the collaborative effort of SFWA's 1800+ members, with new listings appearing as members make recommendations. For this reason, works are occasionally introduced in error and may later be corrected or removed from the list if deemed ineligible by the Nebula Awards Commissioner. The list is provided to the public as a service in finding the year's most noteworthy fantasy and science fiction works.
Please note this list is not the preliminary ballot or nomination tally and does not affect the Nebula Award nominations or final results in any way.
Questions or list corrections can be sent to the Nebula Awards Commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an author or publisher and would like to make your eligible work available to SFWA members for consideration for the Nebula Awards, please mail the Nebula Awards Commissioner for more information. The Nebula Award rules are available here.
