Thanks for putting this up, Lyda.

My first thought is: Naomi Novik is the only woman on the list?

It's also interesting to compare (or, rather, contrast, since there seems to be little overlap) the Hugo to the Nebula ballot:

This is terrific for Scott Lynch. I'm happy for him -- and eagerly awaiting book two...

Wow, where ARE all the female writers? I only see a couple in all the categories. Is the Nebula usually this unbalanced genderwise?
