John W. Campbell Award for Best New Science Fiction Writer
An award for the best new writer whose first work of science fiction or fantasy appeared during 2006 or 2007 in a professional publication. Sponsored by Dell Magazines.

Joe Abercrombie (2nd year of eligibility)

Jon Armstrong (1st year of eligibility)

David Anthony Durham (1st year of eligibility)

David Louis Edelman (2nd year of eligibility)

Mary Robinette Kowal (2nd year of eligibility)

Scott Lynch (2nd year of eligibility)



I am actually doing well this year with the novels; I have read (and loved) both the Chabon and the Scalzi books. Two of the others are in my TBR pile. I only need to track down Brasyl. I have even read books by two of the Campbell nominees - Abercrombie and Lynch. Both are good writers.

One of the Campbell nominees has made a bunch of her short stories available online here for free! Enjoy!

Having now finished four of the five nominated niovels, I would rank them as such:
1. Chabon
2. Scalzi
3. Stross
4. Sawyer

The Chabon was just a lovely and very unusual genre crossing literary book. The Scalzi is a ton of fun - a great action read with some heart and brains. The Stross was OK, not great, not terrible - but the second person narration is quite annoying and distracting. The Sawyer had some great ideas, but was pretty fluffy when all is said and done.

The McDonald book is next up in the batting order and is awaiting my attention in the batting circle.

I've heard a lot of people say the Sawyer is on this year mostly because it's Sawyer; and Charles Stross is on his fifth consecutive nomination--he's the SF posterboy at the moment; so I'm not entirely surprised that you would find those to be the weaker efforts on the ballot.

I've been wondering about Stross. This is the third year I've tried to read all of the nominated novels, and of Stross's the one three years ago (Accellerando) was pretty damned awful, and the ones from last year (Glasshouse) and this year (Halting State) were...OK. I figure at some point in his career he must have written some wonderful stuff, so is getting these nominations simply because of past work?

I have read other books from Sawyer, and they were actually a lot better than Rollback.

I think a science fiction book from last year that I would have liked to see on the ballot rather than either Halting State or Rollback would have been the latest book by Tobias Buckell. Like the Scalzi, it was a nice adventure story with some heart and brains.

Hmmm...it sounds suspicious, doesn't it? Kinda like the Oscar race?

Later, I'll have to look up the history of the Hugo and Nebula awards on Wikipedia or something. I'm a co-mod of this forum now, but I'm clueless about these awards.

Don't worry, we're all clueless too...only Duchy and Alan read fast enough and enough new stuff to barely keep up with them. FantasyBlogSpot has a number of current readers that give intellegent reviews to most of the new novels, at least...

I've not read anything on the ballots for the last several years. I don't read anywhere near as fast as I used to. I only know a bit about them because of the sites and author blogs I read.

It was the Chabon that won the best novel, by the way. :)
