A very worthy set of winners from a basically excellent group of finalists.
I was very happy to finally have a chance to vote on an untainted ballot.
I kept a copy of my ballot, and I ended up agreeing with 9 of the winning choices. I thought John Scalzi’s “The Collapsing Empire” was a better book, but I sure liked N. K. Jemisin’s acceptance speech. Thanks for sharing that link.
