Nicked from SFSignal:

The winners of the 2009 Nebula Awards have just been announced:

The recipient of the Andre Norton Award, recognizing superior achievement in science fiction and fantasy writing for young adults is: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making, Catherynne M. Valente (Catherynne M. Valente, Jun09)

Congrats to the winners! Yet another compelling reason to push The Windup Girl closer to the top of my reading list, and Spar winning Best Short Story is enough to make it the next piece of short fiction I will read and review on my Kobo. I’m curious, too, about Valente’s YA novel.
