Challenge: A Decade Of Award Winners

A Decade of Award Winners

I’m always up for new challenges, as well as finding some great new science fiction and fantasy – so why not combine them? I’ve decided to challenge myself to read the past decade of award winners for the following awards: Hugo, Nebula, British Science Fiction Association, Mythopoeic, Locus Science Fiction, Locus Fantasy, British Fantasy Society, Campbell Award, PKD Award, Clarke Award, Locus First Novel, Stoker, Locus Young Adult, Shirley Jackson Award, David Gemmell Legend Award and David Gemmell Morningstar Award. And using the fantastic website Worlds Without End, I’m going to keep track of my progress here! I’m aiming for this challenge to be an ongoing one, with no strict deadline, and I am counting books read before the creation of the challenge. I will cross a book off if I attempted it but did not finish – after all, this is about trying out celebrated fiction, and if I don’t enjoy it then I won’t make myself read it. If you want to join in, let me know!
