Originally online (and still online) on here.
I make no secret of my personal irritation at SFWA adding a F for Fantasy into their organisation name, and becoming SFFWA. But unless I’m very much mistaken, there is not yet an H for Horror added into their name. So why would you include a horror story in an award for SF and fantasy fiction? And to give it the Nebula Award Best Short Story??
As a contemporary horror/vampire story it’s plenty fine enough, but it’s simply not SFF.
