       Additional Information  
     
      In 1965, Damon Knight founded the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA), whose membership consisted of only seventy-eight writers at the time, and established the annual presentation of the Nebula Awards. Over thirty-five years later SFWA continues the tradition of awarding the best in the science fiction field, chosen by the active members of the organization.
    It was the SFWA's first secretary-treasurer, Lloyd Biggle, Jr., who suggested the publication of an annual anthology collecting the best stories of the year. The first volume, Nebula Award Stories, featuring four classic Nebula Award-winners and four distinguished runners-up in one landmark collection, including:

    Brian W. Aldiss conjures up an invasion of invisible monsters against an English farm in "The Saliva Tree."

    A psychiatrist breaks new ground in mental health with the ability to enter...and reshape...the minds of his patients in Roger Zelazny's "He Who Shapes".

    In Roger Zelazny's "The Doors of his Face, The Lamps of his Mouth", a man is given one last chance at capturing a legendary sea serpent in the oceans of Venus.

    A clownish figure disrupts productivity in a future where loss of time equals loss of life in Harlan Ellisons "'Repent Harlequin!' said the Ticktockman".

    Larry Niven's "Becalmed in Hell" asks the question whether a spaceshipís malfunction is mechanical...or psychological.

    In "Balanced Ecology" by James H. Schmitz, only two children can prevent the cutting and clearing of a diamondwood forest...with a little help from Mother Nature.
