All the Nebula winners

In April last year I was able to announce that I had finally completed doing a write-up on-line, be it ever so humble, of every winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel. Now that I have read Ursula Le Guin's Powers, I can say the same for the Nebula. Here is the full set of 49 winners in 47 years:

1966 Frank Herbert, Dune
1967 Samuel R. Delany, Babel-17
1967 Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon
1968 Samuel R. Delany, The Einstein Intersection
1969 Alexei Panshin, Rite of Passage
1970 Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness
1971 Larry Niven, Ringworld
1972 Robert Silverberg, A Time of Changes
1973 Isaac Asimov, The Gods Themselves
1974 Arthur C. Clarke, Rendezvous with Rama
1975 Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed
1976 Joe Haldeman, The Forever War
1977 Frederik Pohl, Man Plus
1978 Frederik Pohl, Gateway
1979 Vonda N. McIntyre, Dreamsnake
1980 Arthur C. Clarke, The Fountains of Paradise
1981 Gregory Benford, Timescape
1982 Gene Wolfe, The Claw of the Conciliator
1983 Michael Bishop, No Enemy But Time
1984 David Brin, Startide Rising
1985 William Gibson, Neuromancer
1986 Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game
1987 Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead
1988 Pat Murphy, The Falling Woman
1989 Lois McMaster Bujold, Falling Free
1990 Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, The Healer's War
1991 Ursula K. Le Guin, Tehanu: The Last Book of Earthsea
1992 Michael Swanwick, Stations of the Tide
1993 Connie Willis, Doomsday Book
1994 Kim Stanley Robinson, Red Mars
1995 Greg Bear, Moving Mars
1996 Robert J. Sawyer, The Terminal Experiment
1997 Nicola Griffith, Slow River
1998 Vonda McIntyre, The Moon and the Sun
1999 Joe Haldeman, Forever Peace
2000 Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents
2001 Greg Bear, Darwin's Radio
2002 Catherine Asaro, The Quantum Rose
2003 Neil Gaiman, American Gods
2004 Elizabeth Moon, The Speed of Dark
2005 Lois McMaster Bujold, Paladin of Souls
2006 Joe Haldeman, Camouflage
2007 Jack McDevitt, Seeker
2008 Michael Chabon, The Yiddish Policemen's Union
2009 Ursula K. Le Guin, Powers
2010 Paolo Bacigalupi, The Windup Girl
2011 Connie Willis, Blackout/All Clear
2012 Jo Walton, Among Others

My favourites, in no particular order, were The Healer's War, The Left Hand of Darkness, Flowers for Algernon, Rendezvous With Rama, Parable of the Talents, Speed of Dark, Gateway, Doomsday Book and The Dispossessed.

I remain utterly unconvinced of the merits of The Quantum Rose, The Terminal Experiment, Darwin's Radio, Blackout/All Clear, and, though I realise mine is a minority view, Neuromancer and The Gods Themselves.

My next serial prize-winner reading project was foreshadowed in this poll.
