    2. So much thought-provoking in this slender volume and not always for the reasons expected. The introduction and the afterward - decrying the lack of originality in the state of SF at the time - give once a sense of time-travel. ("Perhaps the editor of the 2000 AD Nebula anthology has not been born yet!" they decry after declaring boldly that the Nebula Award will last that long. I had to look it up - Gregory Benford, editor of the 2000 Nebula Award Showcase, was born in 1941. Sorry guys.)Still, t [...]

    3. Ich habe dieses Buch von Reinhold geschenkt bekommen (vielen Dank noch mal!) und zwar in einer gebundenen deutschen Ausgabe, einer Art Silberband, im Rahmen einer von Wolfganag Jeschke herausgegebenen Reihe. Das Buch enthält Nebula Stories von 1966 und Jeschke hat noch ein kurzes Vorwort geschrieben. Zur Einordnung: 1966 erhielten zwei Romane punktgleich den Nebula und zwar "Flowers for Algernon" von Daniel Keyes (das ich sehr gut finde) und "Babel-17" von Delany (das ich noch lesen muss).Die b [...]

    4. One of my goals going forward is to be more liberal about allowing myself to dnf books if I'm truly not enjoying them. Here's a prime example.

I read the first several stories, and although they were all technically fine, I found very little in any of them to actually enjoy. I intended to keep reading regardless, because I'm stubborn like that, but I found myself mak [...]

    5. This book has been mia for a while so taking it off the currently teading list. Sigh. Dont know what happened to it. I was hoping to love it and it just wasnt amazeballs.

    6. It may be my own bias toward Zelazny, but the second Nebula Award Stories 2 left me less satisfied than the first Nebula Awards anthology. This may in part be due to the fact that the concepts in some of these stories have been re-done many time since the 1960s by modern imitators.I'll also admit that 1960s attitudes toward women shine through her - boy, do they. I'm not sure how Zelazny avoided those attitudes so well, given how thoroughly they show up here.Still, it was full of interesting jau [...]
