Here Are the Winners of the 2020 Nebula Awards

Last night, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America held the 55th annual Nebula Awards, designed to honour the best science fiction and fantasy released any given year across prose, film, television, and, as of last year, video games.

Picking up the big award for its episode “Hard Times”, written by Neil Gaiman. The lauded episode, adding to the book, featured a history of Aziraphale and Crowley’s whole relationship. It was rather lovely, and a good choice for winner.
