In keeping with the tradition set by the very first Campbell winner -- Barry N. Malzberg's Beyond Apollo, a fine novel about the failed missions and sex lives of insane astronauts -- the Campbell jury apparently chose the novel from the shortlist that legendarily curmudgeonly and opinionated editor Campbell would have disliked the most. (It's nice to be in a field that has traditions, particularly traditions that simultaneously undermine the usual point of having traditions: to honor and revere our predecessors.)
The Sturgeon has no similar tradition, mostly because Ted Sturgeon liked a whole lot of stories -- that 10% that weren't crud, at least -- and it would be harder to shock the guy who wrote Godbody to begin with.
Anyway, those winners are:
Campbell: The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi(I reviewed Shambling here last year; I've generally loved Morrow's work, but I found it didn't quite gel in the way I hoped it would. I've been avoiding the Bacigalupi book, because I suspect it would cause me to rant and complain enough to seriously annoy my family. But I may need to read it now; it's already won the Nebula and is up for the Hugo.)
Sturgeon: Shambling Towards Hiroshima by James Morrow
Congratulations to both Bacigalupi and Morrow; despite my quibbles, both are excellent writers actively trying to expand the field and write great stories.
