Yesterday was my second and final day at the Nebula Awards weekend. Not to bury the lede, the award in my ballot category of Best Novella went to the excellent Nancy Kress for After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall.

My parents and [info]the_child were there, along with my Aunt B— and Uncle L— from Texas.

There was a comic convention going on next door, so some crossover happened.

These are not the SF writers you are looking for

Still we had fun.

And though I did not win, I got to give away the Best Short Story Nebula to a charmingly shocked Aliette de Bodard.

I'll post more later about the emotional experience of this weekend, and how it has intersected with my illness. For now, suffice to say I had an amazingly good time. My family was pretty happy to be there. My thanks to chair Dave Gallaher, SFWA President John Scalzi, and everyone who worked so hard to make this all come together as fantastically well as it did.

I'm sorry I didn't get over to see you; I misremembered the day for the signing, and yesterday wound up given over to family obligations (and recovery from same).

It was lovely to see you there -- and to enjoy your family at the banquet!

Aliette is just charming whatever the emotion. :)

What are those Storm Troopers doing? Are they reading a menu? Or getting ready to sing?
