I've read nothing.
I briefly considered ending the post right there, but let's go a little bit further (but not much). You can find the list of nominees right here.
Normally, I would have read one or two novels and at least a couple of the stories. Because of not being as immersed in the genre last year as I previously had been, the entire list (minus dramatic presentation) is new to me. That's awesome. It's a fresh reading list filled with wonder and discovery.
I'm thrilled for Nicola Griffith being nominated for Hild. I absolutely adored Ammonite and thought Slow River was fantastic. I expect that Hild will be equally awesome, if not more so. With any luck, I will be acquiring a copy later next week.
A new Neil Gaiman novel is always an event, so I'll be interested to read that, but I am yet more interested in Ancillary Justice from Ann Leckie. It's received a whole bunch of praise this year, but not without some hesitation I've seen in some corners. I've wanted to read it for a while, so this is a great opportunity to do so. We'll see how I fall on that spectrum.
Also interesting there is Linda Nagata's The Red: First Light. Nagata self published The Red, which is what people have been trumpeting about, but I feel like there is context missing there. Which is, simply, Nagata has been published before. She has previously won a Locus award for Best First Novel (which was traditionally published) and she has won a Nebula Award for a novella published in SCIFICTION. There is a substantial difference between a writer who has never sold a book before or been professionally edited deciding to self publish to get her book out and a writer who has a track record of writing quality fiction turning to self publishing later in her career for whatever reason. One of those writers are significantly more likely to have a chance to be nominated for an award and to get a different sort of recognition than the other.
I don't have many thoughts on the short fiction nominees, except that I am very happy for Aliette de Bodard, Ken Liu, and Rachel Swirsky, all of whom I have been a big fan of in the past. I'm excited to see who, among the other nominees, may turn out to be new favorites of mine.
