SFWA Announces 2023 Nebula Award Winners

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA, formerly the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) has announced the winners of the 58th Annual Nebula Awards.  The results were announced during the 2023 Nebula Conference, taking place over the May 12-14 weekend in Anaheim, CA.

Founded as the Science Fiction Writers in 1965 by Damon Knight, the organization has grown to include over 2,500 members worldwide. The Nebula Awards, given out since 1965, grew out of the publication of an annual anthology of the best stories of the year in Nebula Award Stories. The anthology became a ballot and SFWA members choose the best stories each year. Winners are announced at an annual banquet as part of the weekend event that includes workshops and opportunities for professional development and networking for writers of science fiction and fantasy.

This year’s awards are given to writers of the most outstanding speculative fiction works released in 2022. Winners are marked in red.
