For those who haven’t heard The Windup Girl has won this years Nebula Award for best novel. Even more interesting (if only to me) is that the author, Paolo Bacigalupi, makes his home in Colorado the same state where I live and was born in. It’s nice to see a local talent win such a prestigious award as the Nebula. I do own The Windup Girl but wasn’t planning on reading it this year – my plate was already pretty full – but after reading the reviews praising the book I might have to squeeze it in.
