2012 Nebula Awards

This past weekend the Nebula Awards Ceremony was held in Arlington, VA. Our lovely and talented associate editor Damien Walters Grintalis was there, so perhaps she can provide more details on the event itself. We sent 50 copies of issue #19 and 50 copies of #20, so hopefully attendees got a chance to see what makes us rock (and everyone who wanted a copy, got a copy!).

Looking over the incredible list of nominees, we see all sorts of people (well, at least one author in each category) that have been in the pages of Electric Velocipede. We’re very proud of these writers, and want to congratulate them and all the nominees and winners from this past weekend!
