    Congratulations to the winners!

  2. Is this the only major award Ancillary Justice didn’t win? Although a significant “best newcomer” award is not chopped liver.

    I see several titles on my TBR list that need to move higher.

    • Not sure that Ancillary Justice would be eligible for a “Best Fantasy Novel” award–it wasn’t on the short list, that I can see, and it’s more SF than fantasy, to the extent those distinctions mean anything.

    • Ancillary Justice won the Newcomer award, but yeah, was not eligible for the fantasy award…
