N.K. Jemisin’s third Nebula nomination

N.K. Jemisin’s The Kingdom of Gods (US | UK | ANZ) has been nominated for the 2011 Nebula Award!

Last year, her The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (US | UK | ANZ) was nominated for the same award, as well as the Hugo and World Fantasy Awards, and won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. Jemisin has one other Nebula nomination under her belt, for her short story “Non-Zero Probabilities.”

Jemisin’s new novel, The Killing Moon (US | UK | ANZ) will be out in May, followed by its sequel The Shadowed Sun in June.

    Which if they are her usual quality will lead to a situation where both could plausibly be Hugo nominees and they could potentially split the vote and fall short of the necessary number needed to make the ballot [1].

    1: The Hugos themselves use Australian voting but the nominations are, I think, a flat count so it is possible for two strong books from one author to end up costing both books the nomination. Although I don’t think it’s impossible she could get two books on the ballot; that would cause some interesting discussions.
