-----

There are some pretty interesting results here, and to be honest, not a lot of surprises, I don't think. (Some of you may be surprised, I suspect, but that's life.) I highly recommend the Vinge novel, the Ian MacDonald novelette, and the Pratt novella. Anybody have comments on the results?

Hmm...I actually own RAINBOW'S END in hardcover. I guess I'd better get off my duff and read it now.

The Vinge book was a really good read, although not as good as some of his previous stuff, but there were some other very good nominees in the category as well. Some folks find that the Hugos are more a popularity contest, rather than an indicator of good novels and the like, preferring the Nebula Award-winners. I think both awards have merit, as do the Locus Awards, which are handed out annually.

    Oh I didn't know Doctor Who had novelized the first one - that's really neat!

    I've got the Patrick Stewart memoir on my list as well but I need to watch Picard before I read it so that I don't get…

    I'm enjoying your thoughts on Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries. I've not read it yet but every time I see it pop up in lists online the cover grabs my attention.
