What say you to this result?  Harry August has a very nice 4.285 out of 5 from 14 ratings on WWEnd and 4 reviews so far.  I suspect we’ll be seeing some more reads and ratings now that it’s won the Campbell.

Jack GlassThe 2013 John W. Campbell Memorial Award winner was announced in an award ceremony last night at the 2013 Campbell Conference in Lawrence, Kansas.  The winner is Adam Roberts for his book Jack Glass.  There has been no official press release as yet so no word on which books came in 2nd and 3rd place.  We’ll update this when we get that info.

This is the second win for Jack Glass which also won the 2012 British Science Fiction Association Award.  What do you think of this result?  It was a strong field of finalists including the likes of the multiple award winning 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson and books by the late Iain M. Banks, David Brin and China Mieville.  No stranger to awards are they.

The 2013 John W. Campbell Memorial Award finalists have been announced:

The award, for best SF novel, will be presented during the Campbell Conference, to be held July 13-16, 2013 at the Oread Hotel in Lawrence KS.

This makes the 6th award nomination for 2312.  One more and it would have tied only 5 other books for most nominations ever received.  That’s quite an accomplishment for a science fiction book that doesn’t cross genres.

What do you make of this list?  Any personal favorites in there?  There seems to be a wide variety of books though I am curious to see what people make of the fact that only 1 in 13 of the books was written by a female author.
