Comments: Even though 1993 is reasonably recent - a mere twenty-one years ago - the result of the Campbell Awards are once again an example of how some books age better than others. At the time, I doubt if anyone would have questioned the placement of Charles Sheffield's Brother to Dragons as the first place finisher in the voting. But now, two decades later, I suspect that most people who you asked would rank these books in the reverse order from the order they appear here, with Vinge's A Fire Upon the Deep taking first place, and Sheffield's book relegated to the third spot.
