Wednesday has come upon us once again, and I have plucked the ripest of links for your enjoyment. The Nebulas are over, and I’ve linked to the results below. There is a little bit of everything in there, even free books. In the coming weeks, if you find something interesting you think everyone should read, drop me a line via the contact form and let me know, or just post it as a comment below. Let’s get started:

I’m not so sure awards are always accurate predictors of the best, but 2010’s crop looked rather exceptional. You might want to read Bill’s review of Connie Willis’s winning novel Blackout/All Clear and Terry’s reviews of the nominated novellas, novelettes, and short stories.
