Stayed up until the Nebula nomination period ended (!#$& PST timezone!) in a fit of nervous suspense, hitting refresh compulsively on the nomination tally poll. A couple eleventh-hour (literally) recs kept "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest" in the running (thank you, whoever you were!). Now waiting for the Nebula committee to tally the paper nomination ballots to see if "Sinner" made the final ballot.
I am so totally thrashed this AM. Not gonna be at my best at work today...and probably all this week. Final ballot comes out on the 20th.
Yeah, I know, The 20th! I think I've lost years off my life this week from all the edge-of-my-seat, nail-biting suspense.
I can't imagine how "Non-Zero Probabilities" wouldn't be on the final ballot. Not only is it an amazing story, but mathematically speaking, it would take a veritable tidal wave to knock it off.
I recall reading on one of the forums that although ballots were sent out to the poeple without e-mail addresses, paper ballots were requested by a grand total of 2 people...
That could have changed by now, but you look safe ;o)
It's a lifelong dream of mine, too, to have one of my stories appear on the Nebula ballot, which is why I'm absolutely certain that after they tally the paper ballots, I'll find that "Sinner" has been knocked out of the running. But hey, Mr. Campbell-Award-Winner, aren't these award thingies old hat for you ?
