Is this for calendar year 2010 or for some other time frame?

Okay. Not that it much matters to me since I'm seldom up on what's come out that recently. I've read two scifi books from 2010 (three if you count the halves of Willis's separately) which is more than usual. Of the two, I thought Galileo's Dream was better than Blackout/All Clear. I don't really know whom to root for from the various lists.

Sad but true. I almost never get around to reading books in the year they come out, except for J. K. Rowling and Gene Wolfe. I vote for the author, not the book or story. Not a good plan, but better than not voting at all. Or is it?

When I do finally get around to reading the 2011 winners -- going by my current track record, that will be some time in 2014 -- I expect to enjoy the new Miles Vorkosegan novel most. Lois McMasters Bujold's work has been a little uneven. It's always enjoyable, but occasionally you get the feeling she is just churning out the novels to pay the bills. Her latest has gotten her best reviews since A Civil Campaign, and I loved A Civil Campaign. I'm not sure I'll vote for it. Bujold already has some Hugos. Others may be more worthy. I haven't decided yet. Any recommendations?
