2010 Nebula Award Winner

The 2010 Nebula Awards were announced at the Nebula Awards Banquet held at the Hilton Cocoa Beach Ocean front on 15 May 2010.

The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi

The Guardian had this to say of Bacigalupi’s novel:

“Paolo Bacigalupi’s The Windup Girl was voted winner of the Nebula by the 1,500 author members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, ahead of novels including China Miéville’s fantastical crime novel The City and the City, which won prestigious UK science fiction prize the Arthur C Clarke late last month, Jeff VanderMeer’s Finch and Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker.

Nominated for a Hugo award and named one of the 10 best novels of last year by Time magazine, The Windup Girl is the story of Emiko, an engineered being grown in a creche to satisfy the sexual whims of a Japanese businessman and abandoned to roam the streets of Bangkok. Set in a world where the global economy is built on calories, Emiko meets Anderson Lake, who is searching Bangkok for “extinct” foodstuffs for his company AgriGen.”
