The Windup Girl was a great book but I thought Boneshaker by Cherrie Priest was better.

I was on a long trip to Europe so it is a pleasure to return and visit this site once again. A lot of posts to catch up on. You know, with Paolo Bacigalupi’s The Windup Girl winning both the Nebula and Hugo, it joins an exclusive list of SF books that have won both awards. It is one of only 20 novels to win both awards! Does this mean that this is one of the great all-time books of SciFi? A member of the SF cannon? Throw in the Campbell win and suddenly the list dwindles even more. I did a little comparison to see which novels won 3 out of 4: Nebula, Hugo, Campbell or Locus and here is the list (to which The Windup Girl is now added):The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Michael Chabon (2007)Forever Peace, Joe Haldeman (1997)Doomsday Book, Connie Willis (1992)Speaker for the Dead, Orson Scott Card (1986)Startide Rising, David Brin (1983)Dreamsnake, Vonda N. McIntyre (1978)The Dispossessed, Ursula K. Le Guin (1974)The Forever War, Joe Haldeman (1974)The Gods Themselves, Isaac Asimov (1972)Ringworld, Larry Niven (1970)
