- The Windup Girl, Paolo Bacigalupi
- Flesh and Fire, Laura Anne Gilman
- The City & The City, China Miéville
I'm pleased to say that The Windup Girl won. Partially because it means I don't have to read the other three.
I haven't read any of the older ones since my last update, so I've now read 30 out of 45. I have not yet read last year's winner. Since I like to read all of the preceding books in the series, I now have a trilogy on my hands. Since it's Ursula K. LeGuin, I'm looking forward to it. First I have to finish Connie Willis' Blackout, which I suspect will be one of the 2010 nominees.
Once I get to the LeGuin book, I'll have read all of the winners 1992-2009, so I can start working my way back again. (Or forward, if I don't have enough time to get to that trilogy in the next year...)
