Hugo Voter package scores again

I hadn't realised until just now that the Hugo Voter Package also contains electronic copies of four more novels:

Monster Hunter International, by Larry Correia,
I am not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells,
Moxyland by Lauren Beukes, and
The Magicians by Lev Grossman

as well as a short story by Grossman and four more short stories by Saladin Ahmed; all five authors have been nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer (not to be confused with the John W. Campbell Memorial Award).

I must admit that I generally haven't voted in this contest in the past, but since the organisers have given me the opportunity to get educated I will probably take it. I think the only one of these books I would otherwise have been looking out for is Moxyland.

I will be interested to see what you think of The Magicians.

Ditto - my experience is that it's a bit of a love it or hate it book. I am in the former camp, so obviously I think you should read it...

I started out loving it and got progressively more irritated.

I really enjoyed The Magicians, which I read after a recommendation by autopope. It is kind of bleak, though.

Not any more - the full text has been uploaded.

I can't remember who it was who described the Campbell award as "the most important if the Hugos, and it isn't even a Hugo".
