POLL RESULTS: The Book That Should Have Won the 2007 Hugo

Here are the results of the latest SF Signal poll.

QUESTION
Which novel should have won the 2007 Hugo Award?

RESULTS

(72 total votes)

I expected a lower voter turnout this week since I figured not everyone felt comfortable voting unless they had read all the books. I’m not sure if that’s what happened here, but most voters seem to think that Watts should have taken the prize. Still, I do wonder…how many actual Hugo voters have read all the nominated novels?

Comments this week:

“I dig the Sealab stuff, but you can’t beat big Vernor at the top of his game. Not with a dolphin girl, that’s for sure…” – platyjoe

“Both Glasshouse and Blindsight are SO much better than the sleep inducing Rainbows End, but Blindsight beats Glasshouse by a nose. It’s as good as SciFi gets.” – David

    Great, now I have to friggin read “Blindsight”.
    If this book sucks as bad as “Hyperion” I am going to be pissed.

  2. Hmm, didn’t even notice there was a poll for this.
    I was very surprised to see Glasshouse with the fewest votes here; I read all five novels this year, and that was the strongest nominee by far.
    I am a big fan of Vinge, and have read everything he’s written, but I found Rainbows End to be quite dull.

  3. Some additional discussion on this poll going on at SF Awards Watch.
