Non-Zero Probabilities


2009 Nebula Award Nominee
2010 Hugo Award Nominee

The 2009 Nebula Awards Final Ballot was announced this week and we are very pleased to see two works from Clarkesworld competing in the short story category. "Non-Zero Probabilities" by N.K. Jemisin and "Spar" by Kij Johnson are fantastic stories and we couldn't be happier for both authors.

We've previously podcast "Spar" and felt it was only right to celebrate by sharing a special podcast of "Non-Zero Probabilities" with you today. Enjoy!
