Did you find any sfnal content in "Always," and if so, where? That story makes "What I Didn't See" look like "All You Zombies."

I got back from the Nebs last night. It was a good ceremony. Mike Moorcock gave a great acceptance speech for his Grand Master honor. Michael Chabon was gracious and charming in accepting his award, Nancy Kress spoke about how strong the novella category was, Karen Fowler was surprised and pleased to take the honor this year, and I managed (despite losing the printout and having to go online 30 minutes before the ceremony) to find and read Ted's acceptance speech, which spoke of how wonderful the Nebula Awards anthoologies have been and how nice it was to be part of the great tradition.

Not really. And as you might expect, I'm not pleased. Which is another reason I prefer the Hugos.
As Mike Resnick has said many times, the year SFWA voted to do away with requal it became nothing more than a fan organization. Part of that same general mindset has led to non-sf stories (no matter how good or well written or blah blah blah) winning Nebulas.
