1987 Nebula Awards

Presented at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Hollywood, California on May 21, 1988

David Rappoport, an actor in Time Bandits happened to be staying at the hotel and was spotted reading Omni.  When he was told that the editor was on the opposite side of the pool and the Nebulas were taking place, he offered to speak, and became a speaker at the banquet.  David Webb, who was supposed to introduce the keynote speaker, launched into a diatribe about how we’ve turned out back on space and the keynote speaker, Louis Friedman spoke on the need to explore Mars, although neither were particularly well received.  The Grand Master Award was for Alfred Bester, who had died between being informed of the honor and the Nebula Weekend.
