Summary (From the publisher):

In an annual tradition, the members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America present the Nebula Awards to honor authors of the year’s most astounding fiction—compelling stories that widen the imaginative boundaries of the genre. Nebula Awards Showcase brings these stories together in one indispensable volume. An autistic faces a decision to let society and medical science cure his condition in The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon. A young girl confronts her parents’ doppelgangers in Neil Gaiman’s Coraline. A dark secret plagues the last surviving member of an African expedition in “What I Didn’t See” by Karen Joy Fowler. In Jeffrey Ford’s “The Empire of Ice Cream,” the key to a man’s sensory affliction—and his isolation—is found in the taste of coffee. And “Movements in Science Fiction and Fantasy” offers insightful commentaries about the genre’s role in our literary landscape.
