Nebula Award Stories Six [book]

Nebula Award Stories Six [book]

SLOW SCULPTURE: OH MAN, THE AWARD WINNING NEBULA AWARD BEING A STORY ABOUT A TOTALLY INACCURATE UNDERSTANDING OF BREAST CANCER IS PERFECT NEBULA AWARDS.

IN THE QUEUE:THE BEST PART OF THIS ONE IS THAT HIS LUNCH WAS A "VERY DRY HOTDOG AND A PAPER CUP OF WARM MILK", BLECH.

THE ISLAND OF DOCTOR DEATH AND OTHER STORIES: OH MAN I MISINTERPRETED THIS AT FIRST AND IT WAS SO MUCH BETTER MY WAY. IT'S LIKE, A KID IN A WHIMSICAL FICTIONAL CHARACTER WORLD THEN IT SNAPS TO THE END WHERE IT'S JUST A SAD KID READING BOOKS AND HIS MOM IS ON METHAMPHETAMINE WHICH MADE HIM SAD. BUT THEY DROP THAT WORD FIRST IN THE FICTION AND I FELT 100% SURE THE TWIST WAS THE KID WAS ACTUALLY ON METH AND HALLUCINATIONS AND THAT WAS HILARIOUS.

ILL MET IN LANKHMAR: I COMPLAIN THAT THE NEBULA AWARDS ARE JUST ALL FANTASY NOW INSTEAD OF SCI-FI BUT THIS WAS A FANTASY STORY AND TOOK UP LIKE HALF THE BOOK AND ALSO I ENDED UP SKIMMING IT SO BADLY I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT EVEN HAPPENED IN IT. SO WELP.

CONTINUED ON THE NEXT ROCK: THIS WAS A REALLY GOOD STORY BUT SUFFERED FROM THE FACT I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT A ROCK CHIMNEY IS ENOUGH TO FOLLOW THE ARCHEOLOGY EASILY AND I HAD TO READ THIS TWICE BECAUSE OF IT.

BY THE FALLS: THIS FEELS LIKE ONE OF THOSE STORIES THAT WAS WRITTEN 50 YEARS AGO AND WAS PROBABLY SUPER CLEVER AND ORIGINAL BUT SEEMS LIKE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING READING IT IN 2018

THE SECOND INQUISITION: THIS IS THE BEST STORY AND IS THE STORY ON THE COVER EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT THE WINNER AND THE BEST PART OF IT IS HOW SO CLEARLY IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S A METAPHOR FOR BECOMING A LESBIAN BUT INSTEAD IS ABOUT BECOMING A GRANDMA. LIKE A MYSTERIOUS 10 FOOT TALL BLACK WOMAN COMES TO LIVE IN YOUR 16 YEAR OLD GIRL HOUSE AND BUYS YOU SEXUAL BOOKS AND DRAWS YOU DRAWINGS OF MICE FUCKING THEN GETS YOU DRUNK AND DRIVES YOU AROUND IN A STOLEN CAR AND YOU WATCH HER GET FINGERED AND THEN YOUR HER GRANDDAUGHTER.

PS. OH MAN, NEBULA AWARDS! I LOVE HOW THE TITLE IS WRONG, LIKE THEY PHRASED THE TITLE TO BE UNPRONOUNCEABLE. IT'S LIKE THE WRONG WORDS TWICE OVER.
