Whee!

I'm on the Nebula Ballot.  At least, my short story "Walpurgis Afternoon" is on the Nebula Ballot, under Novellas.  And Ellen's The Privilege of the Sword is on, too, under Novels.  And there is much rejoicing in the house.

I've never been nominated for a Nebula before.  This is the best of both worlds.  I get to be a nominee (which is a true honor, given the strength of the contenders this year) and I'm not going to win (I don't have to make a speech).  I'm not being modest here.  The list is spectacular.
