  1. I don’t know about this one.  The books that win nebulas/hugos tend to have a healthy amount of some new branch of science, but don’t necessarily have a good plot or characters that a new sf reader would enjoy.

     

  2. I agree completely.  That said, some folks who want to dip their toes in the waters of science fiction without going for a lengthy swim are specifically looking for books that have received accolades. This post is for them.
