Part one was the Hugo Awards (where I went 36-for-53, or 68%); part two was the Nebulas (where I went 23-of-42, or 55%). Now I'll see how many of the World Fantasy Award-winning novels I've read in my checkered reading career:
- 2005 Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
- 2004 Walton, Jo: Tooth and Claw
Yes -- how could I not, since I'm an Anthony Trollope fan? (And something of a Jo Walton fan, come to think of it.)
- 2003 (tie) Joyce, Graham: The Facts of Life
No -- though, reading his most recent book for WFA this year, I might want to go back.
- 2003 (tie) McKillip, Patricia A.: Ombria in Shadow
No -- though reading her 2005 books for WFA makes me interested.
- 2002 Le Guin, Ursula K. : The Other Wind
- 2001 (tie) Powers, Tim: Declare
Oh, yes. A wonderful, wonderful book -- impressive even for Powers.
- 2001 (tie) Stewart, Sean: Galveston
Yes. Not one of my favorites of his, though.
- 2000 Scott, Martin: Thraxas
No. On the other hand, hardly anyone else has, either...
- 1999 Erdrich, Louise: The Antelope Wife
- 1998 Ford, Jeffrey : The Physiognomy
- 1997 Pollack, Rachel: Godmother Night
I read about the first third of it, and was very disappointed -- I'd loved her novels Unquenchable Fire and Temporary Agency for the way they had a very grounded, realistic, matter-of-fact contemporary world with magic added to it, but Godmother was far too woo-woo and "goddessy" for me to enjoy.
- 1996 Priest, Christopher: The Prestige
Not yet, but I do have a copy of it.
- 1995 Morrow, James: Towing Jehovah
- 1994 Shiner, Lewis : Glimpses
- 1993 Powers, Tim : Last Call
- 1992 McCammon, Robert R.: Boy's Life
- 1991 (tie )Morrow, James: Only Begotten Daughter
- 1991 (tie) Kushner, Ellen: Thomas the Rhymer
Not yet. It's short, so I probably will get to it.
- 1990 Vance, Jack: Lyonese: Madouc
- 1989 Straub, Peter: Koko
- 1988 Grimwood, Ken: Replay
Strangely, no. I don't think I even have a copy of it, though it's a book I've intended to read for nearly twenty years now.
- 1987 Suskind, Patrick: Perfume
- 1986 Simmons, Dan: Song of Kali
- 1985 (tie) Holdstock, Robert: Mythago Wood
- 1985 (tie) Hughart, Barry: Bridge of Birds
- 1984 Ford, John M.: Dragon Waiting
- 1983 Shea, Michael: Nifft the Lean
- 1982 Crowley, John: Little, Big
- 1981 Wolfe, Gene: The Shadow of the Torturer
- 1980 Lynn, Elizabeth A.: Watchtower
- 1979 Moorcock, Michael: Gloriana
- 1978 Leiber, Fritz: Our Lady of Darkness
- 1977 Kotzwinkle, William: Dr. Rat
No. However, I have read his The Fan Man and The Bear Went Over the Mountain, so I think I should get partial credit. Actually, I don't think I've ever even seen a copy of this book.
- 1976 Matheson, Richard: Bid Time Return (Somewhere in Time)
- 1975 McKillip, Patricia A.: Forgotten Beasts of Eld
No. Though I hope to, someday.
So I've read 19 of 35 (plus part of Godmother Night): not bad at 55%. It's exactly the same as I did on the Nebulas, which is a mixed message: I'm not a member of SFWA (not being a writer) but I am a WFA judge this year...
Side note: It's interesting that a panel of five judges has produced so many ties. I'm not sure what that means; perhaps that WFA judges prefer to share the wealth, or that they get hopelessly deadlocked far too often.
