- Fire with Fire by Charles E. Gannon (Baen)
- Hild by Nicola Griffith (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
- The Red: First Light by Linda Nagata (Mythic Island)
- A Stranger in Olondria by Sofia Samatar (Small Beer)
- The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker (Harper)
Congrats to Anne and all the nominees. This was one hell of a good nominees list. You can see the complete list of winners in all categories on the SFWA site.
Ancillary Justice has been nominated for five major awards and has already won the 2013 BSFA and the 2014 Clarke and is still in the running for the 2014 Hugo. That’s 3 out of 4 so far. Very impressive. Can she go 4 out of 5 with the Hugo? What do you think of this result? With all those noms it can’t be much of a surprise. Anything on the ballot that you would have preferred to have won?
