Correction to the final ballot: one novelette and one story were left off by a procedural error
The Preliminary Nebula Ballot
I think it's an embarrassment that nothing made the preliminary ballot for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy. . I really feel the membership let the ball drop in this category.

But on the admirable side, the venues for the short story category are relatively diverse this year -- of the fourteen stories:

2 were published online (Clarkesworld and Helix)
1 is from an anthology (The Coyote Road)
1 is from a collection (The Guild of Xenolinguists)

4 from Asimov's
2 from Realms of Fantasy
2 from F&F
1 Analog
1 from Subterranean Magazine

Out of the four novellas:
2 are from magazines (Analog and F&SF)
1 from a collection (Dangerous Spaces)
1 from an anthology (Alien Crimes)

The nine novelettes are from the usual suspects: F&SF, Asimov's, Analog, and one anthology (he SFWA European Hall of Fame)

and one lonely script: WALL-E
These recommended stories will be losing their eligibility at the end of the month, so if you are an SFWA member and had intended to read them and/or rec them do it NOW--I can email you a copy or you can read them through the link on the NAR.
Barron, Laird -> The Forest
Hirshberg, Glen -> The Janus Tree
Thomas, Lee -> An Apiary of White Bees

Short Stories:
Ballingrud, Nathan -> Monsters of Heaven
Bear, Elizabeth -> Inelastic Collisions
Dowling, Terry -> The Suits at Auderlene
Ford, Jeffrey -> The Bedroom Light
Shepard, Lucius -> The Ease With Which We Freed the Beast
