1993 Nebula Awards

Presented at Valley River Inn, Eugene, Oregon on April 23, 1994

Eugene might have seemed, for some, an unlikely choice, but it worked out quite well, attracting 215 attendees. The bid to obtain the Nebula event for Eugene was spearheaded largely by local bookseller Bill Trojan. The event itself was  orchestrated  expertly by Dean Wesley Smith, aided by an energetic and efficient staff of local writers. The hotel venue was the  gorgeous,  sprawling,  architecturally  slightly strange Valley River  Inn  overlooking  the  Willamette River. There was a Friday night cash bar.  Following the Saturday morning Business meeting, there were panels on Saturday afternoon on the use of computers to track book sales and publishing trends.  Connie Willis and Edward Bryant co-toastmastered.  K. Eric Drexler provided the keynote speech on molecular nanotechnology.
