2013 Philip K. Dick Award Nominees Announced

The nominees for the 2013 Philip K. Dick Award were announced today. The Philip K. Dick Award is given to the best original science fiction paperback of the year as determined by a panel of judges. The 2013 judges are Elizabeth Bear (chair), Siobhan Carroll, Michael Kandel, Jamil Nasir, and Timothy Sullivan.

Here are the nominees:

The winner of the award will be announced on April 18, 2014.

I haven’t read any of these books besides Ancillary Justice, which I read towards the end of last year. If the rest of the books on the list of nominees are on par with that one, this is going to be an incredibly difficult choice for the judging panel to make. Maybe I can find time to read a couple of the others before April and try to take a guess at which one I think will be the winner in the end.

  1. “The Mad Scientist’s Daughter” was one of the best books I read in 2013. It’s the only one on the list that I’ve read, but if the others are on par with it, then it’ll be an interesting contest indeed.
