The Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlist has been announced, and the popularity of the six books on Goodreads and LibraryThing is as follows:
Goodreads LibraryThing
owners av rating owners av rating
The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead 240219 4.05 1602 4.09
A Closed and Common Orbit, Becky Chambers 15509 4.4 190 4.37
Ninefox Gambit, Yoon Ha Lee 13440 3.96 219 4.02
Central Station, Lavie Tidhar 4835 3.53 124 3.77
After Atlas, Emma Newman 1948 4.21 49 4.38
Occupy Me, Tricia Sullivan 794 3.46 33 3.55
The standout for me is After Atlas, which despite being owned by the second fewest number of users of both systems has the highest rating on LibraryThing and the second highest on Goodreads.

Though it's also arguable that it's more difficult to retain a high ranking as the number of people reading the book increases and more people who don't like it record their opinions, in which case A Closed and Common Orbit also looks good. (And The Underground Railroad doesn't look bad either.)
