2017 Campbell Award Nominees

Location: Campbell Conference Awards Banquet at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas.

Comments: The Campbell Awards are often an outlier when it comes to genre fiction awards. While the Nebulas, Hugos, and Locus Awards often have some crossover, it seems that the Campbell Award often walks to the beat of its own drummer. I guess this is the long way of me saying that when these nominations were announced, I hadn't read any of them. This is fairly typical of a Campbell ballot - I simply haven't had enough time to read as many of the books that have been nominated for this award over the years as I would like to. I should probably get to remedying that, and sooner rather than later.
