Nebula Awards Showcase 2015

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been catching up on short stories and thought it might be nice to look at what the Nebula’s have been awarding in recent years (technically this volume collects the 2013 awards). I’m continually impressed by the power of certain short short stories which, though they have few words, carry more weight than stories ten times their size.

Moving Mars

I really enjoyed this book. Excellent pacing, fantastic hard science speculation, and a protagonist that changes before your eyes. Very cool.

City at the End of Time

Potentially the most complex piece of science fiction I've ever read. To understand what is happening requires your full attention. Even at the end, I'm not entirely sure I understand the whole thing. Challenging read.

Darwin's Radio

This is an awesome book! Scientific thriller of the first order. Very engaging read. Honestly, if you haven't read Eon, Darwin's Radio, and Blood Music, you should set down everything and read them.

Blood Music

Without a doubt, Blood Music by Greg Bear is an ingenious work of science fiction.

Eon

Another one that I really need to write a long review. . .this book is awesome. Hard science, crazy out there ramifications of science that still feel like they might be plausible, and a really interesting story to boot.
