A while back, Jesse, Tamahome, and I discussed the Nebula-nominated short stories that were available on audio, on an SFF Audio podcast. I don't want to rehash everything I said on the podcast, but I will say that I hope the E. Lily Yu story "The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees" wins the prize. I had read that one in print previously to listening to the audio. It is gorgeous.
A few useful links:
