2010 Hugo Nominees

The Guardian, correctly notes that many of this year’s Hugo nominees (otherwise known as the best of the best for science fiction novels) all suffer from mainstream invisibility.

“As usual, this lack of coverage says more about the mainstream press than the books in question,” writes Sam Jordison.  “Why Jonathan Safran Foer’s decision to eat no meat or Ian McEwan’s discovery that global warming may not be to the universal benefit of mankind should merit so many more column inches than these intriguing books is a question I can’t answer.” 

The list includes: Boneshaker by Cherie Priest; The City & The City by China Miéville; Julian Comstock: A Story of 22nd-Century America by Robert Charles Wilson; Palimpsest by Catherynne M Valente; Wake by Robert J Sawyer; and The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi.
