All of them deserve the prize!

Ted - have you read 'em all?

Ted Mahsun said...

Err... You've caught me! Mea culpa!

I've read some of them, but the rest, I've read the authors' previous works and am confident enough in their skills of storytelling for them to write another great book.

Little Brother is a little preachy though.

I guess I was looking more at the authors themselves, rather than the books that were nominated. IMHO, all the authors deserve to be given a Hugo.
