BSFA shortlist: Goodreads/LibraryThing stats

The BSFA shortlist is out - somehow I only spoted it today. (The Nebula final ballot is out too, but I'll post the stats for that tomorrow.)

There are five shortlisted novels, which were 8th, 13th, 16th, 17th and 32nd on my previous ranking.

Goodreads LibraryThing
owners av rating owners av rating
Tade Thompson – Rosewater 20,063 3.86 192 3.79
Yoon Ha Lee – Revenant Gun 7,147 4.21 146 4.06
Gareth L Powell – Embers of War 4,651 4 69 3.67
Emma Newman – Before Mars 3,504 4.09 75 4.05
Dave Hutchinson – Europe at Dawn 359 4.14 37 4.4

It's striking that although Rosewater has the most owners on both systems, it's also relatively low-ranked, last on GR and second last on LT.  Meanwhile Europe At Dawn and Revenant Gun take first and second place in both systems.

Well, we'll see.
