  1. Some day maybe I’ll truly understand what I missed in both All the Birds in the Sky and Every Heart a Doorway. I didn’t hate either one of them, but I didn’t see the huge appeal either. Oh well!

    Nonetheless, huge congrats to all the winners!

  2. Yay, especially for McGuire (I liked that novella a ton). 🙂 Congrats to all.

  3. Congratulations to all! Especially loved Seasons of Glass and Iron so I’m really pleased to see it celebrated. And I hope I come across The Long Fall Up in reprint someday, it sounds intriguing.

  4. It’s been an amazing Nebula weekend. I just got back from my last event of it, the Volunteer Breakfast. Thank you to all the people who helped make it so full of awesome. It’s still surreal to me to be part of a world where I get to talk to so many of my heroes.

    And I hope I come across The Long Fall Up in reprint someday, it sounds intriguing.

    If you have Amazon Prime, you should be able to borrow a copy of the May/June 2016 F&SF for free. Your own public library may let you do the same thing. Here’s a list of ways to get the back issue.

    It was a very moving story, but I thought it had enough problems that I didn’t recommend it. YMMV.

  6. Does F&SF let you read on Kindle for PC? I was really annoyed with them for canceling my subscription at Fictionwise and only providing for new e-subscriptions on hardware Kindle devices, so I haven’t read their magazine in years. Although, I must admit, the publishers of Analog and Isaac Asimov’s seem to have done the same at the beginning of this year.

  7. Super-happy for the Novelette and Arabella of Mars, which didn’t get anything near the attention it should have. Both were on my personal Hugo longlist. And of course I’m all about “Seasons…” since the first time I read it.

    Had no idea the Bradbury Award was so cool!

  8. @Greg thanks for the info. Neither option is available to me right now sadly, but I hope this is useful for others who are interested in the winner.

  9. lurkertype: Had no idea the Bradbury Award was so cool!

    Nor did I! I love that they’ve used an old IBM Selectric typewriter ball for the head. 😀

  10. One of the most adorable moments of the ceremony was that when they announced Every Heart A Doorway, Seanan didn’t immediately realize she’d won. Then suddenly she went “Oh SHIT” and started trying to untangle herself from her chair to go accept it.

    Does F&SF let you read on Kindle for PC?

    Sadly, no, but it does work on the Android reader, so if you have an Android phone or tablet, you can read it there. It also works on a Kindle Fire.

  12. I’m looking for a way to be able to preserve my magazines and to be able to read them on my non-Kindle eInk readers, and sadly, F&SF doesn’t believe that I should be able to do that. From the comments on their Amazon page, I can’t even tell if it’s possible to read an issue after the next issue is out, or if the subscription lapses.

  13. @Bruce A

    You can set magazine issues to “keep” on kindle which stops them disappearing into the ether. You can also download old issues in your subscription from the Amazon website, which can be imported into calibre. I seem to recall there’s a couple of extra steps to get that to work though.
    More easily, you can just buy epubs from Weightless Books, which I will probably be switching to once my current Amazon sub runs out.

  14. And I’d just finished “Every Heart a Doorway” for my Hugo reading. I liked it quite a lot. (I’d already read “All the Birds in the Sky” — it was on my Hugo nominating ballot).

    It’s been a good year for SFF.
