Clarke proudly noted three of these top-voted Clarkesworld short stories are Nebula nominees:

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.

  1. “Clarke proudly noted three of these top-voted Clarkesworld short stories are Nebula nominees:”

    To be polite, I will offer the pedantic correction that “of these” does not belong in that sentence. (The Miller story is nominated for a Nebula, but not on the Reader’s Poll list.)

  2. Chad: I always feel bad when a post makes pedants want to gouge their eyes out…

  3. Makes me go back to check my own list of favorites from this venue:

    Robert Reed, “The Empress in Her Glory”
    Chen Qiufan, “Coming of the Light”
    Andy Dudek, “Asymptotic”

    Complete discongruity
