  1. OH NO!!! The top fiction winners are all of the same gender. Horror!

    Oh wait, their all women so that’s okay. Whew. Internet firestorm averted.

  2. Ancillary Justice sure was the most interesting, original and thought-provoking SF novel I read in quite some time. A great win. I am already looking forward to book 2.

  3. To be honest I thought Ancillary Justice was ok but not great. It seemed similar to something Ian Banks could have written but nowhere near as good. Not sure why it’s winning all these awards.

    I did enjoy parts of it but maybe I was expecting more after all the marketing hype that surrounded it. I didn’t find any of the ideas particularly original and I couldn’t bring myself to care much about what happened to the characters. It’s great for a first novel but I don’t think it should be a major award winner.

  4. Man, did I make a lot of bad calls! The only thing I voted for that won was Gravity. I did enjoy Ancillary Justice but (heavy sigh) I thought We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves was the best book I’d read in years.
