The readers picked “Spring Day is Coming” by Liu Junwei as their favorite cover art.
- “So Much Cooking” by Naomi Kritzer
- “Yuanyuan’s Bubbles” by Liu Cixin, translated by Carmen Yiling Yan (tie) “Cat Pictures Please” by Naomi Kritzer (tie)
- “Cassandra” by Ken Liu (tie) “The Three Resurrections of Jessica Churchill” by Kelly Robson (tie) “Today I am Paul” by Martin L. Shoemaker (tie)
Clarke proudly noted three of these top-voted Clarkesworld short stories are Nebula nominees:
- “Cat Pictures Please” by Naomi Kritzer (Clarkesworld 1/15)
- “When Your Child Strays From God” by Sam J. Miller (Clarkesworld 7/15)
- “Today I Am Paul” by Martin L. Shoemaker (Clarkesworld 8/15)
Under the circumstances, it’s surprising that the readers’ favorite, Naomi Kritzer’s novelette “So Much Cooking,” didn’t rate a Nebula nomination in its category.
