The full list is here. I point you all to the nominees for "Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form". . . ;)

The best novel nominees are:

Blackout/All Clear by Connie Willis
Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold
The Dervish House by Ian McDonald
Feed by Mira Grant
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin

What have you read? What's on your TBR stack? Any thoughts on how this list compares to the Nebula nominees?

I've read two (100K Kingdoms and Cryoburn), have the Willis duology on Mt. TBR, keep planning on picking up the first book in Ian McDonald's series, and have absolutely no interest in Feed. So I feel all up-to-date!

That said. . . for some reason this list strikes me as less. . . adventurous, I think, than the Nebula list. At least, less adventurous setting-wise. . . And I'm really, really surprised (given what I've heard; I haven't read it myself yet) that Nnedi Okorafor's Who Fears Death didn't get a nod!
