preliminary nebula nominees from Asimov's

Just in case you needed something to read, Asimov's has put up their stories on the preliminary Nebula ballot.

So, for your reading pleasure (and mine):

"The Ray-Gun: A Love Story", by James Alan Gardner
"Dark Rooms", by Lisa Goldstein
"The Prophet of Flores", by Ted Kosmatka

(I've previously read both "The Ray-Gun" and "The Prophet of Flores" and these are two good stories. Both worth checking out. "Dark Rooms" is new to me, I think)

Short Story
"Skull Valley", by Michael Cassutt
"26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss", by Kij Johnson
"Don't Stop", by James Patrick Kelly
"How Music Begins", by James Van Pelt

(I haven't read any of these, but I've read one other story from Kij Johnson and it was fantastic. James Van Pelt also had a story in Alembical which I enjoyed. I'm mixed on James Patrick Kelly. Never heard of Michael Cassutt before.)

Thanks for sharing, a happy evening spent reading when that was what I needed most.
