Phoenix Pick, the science fiction imprint of Arc Manor Publishers has published two Novellas currently being considered for a Nebula Award by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.
The awards will be presented during the Nebula Weekend of May 13 to May 16, 2010.
Act One by Nancy Kress is about genetic manipulation and biological terrorism, subjects very relevant to today's world. Nancy Kress is a highly decorated science fiction author and her awards include four Nebulas and two Hugos.
Arkfall by Carolyn Ives Gilman takes place on a far planet where humans live deep within an apparently lifeless planet and where close proximity to each other has bred a special type of non-confrontational culture.
More details on these award-nominated books can be found at the publisher's web-site at http://www.PhoenixPick.com.
Phoenix Pick has also re-published Carolyn Gilman's debut novel, Halfway Human which was originally published to wide critical acclaim and was a Starflight Reader Nominee for the Best Book of the Year.
Both the Nebula Nominated Novellas and Halfway Human may be purchased directly from stores or from the publisher's web-site.
Prices for each Novella range are $4.99 for the Kindle (e-book) version and $5.99 for a trade paperback. However, for a limited time, Phoenix Pick is offering a PDF (e-book) version for $3.99. For readers interested in both books, both books are being offered in a package for only $6.99.
