Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlist - Goodreads/LibraryThing stats

The Clarke Award shortlist is out. Although (as I well know) it's a juried award, the leader on this table has won the award four years out of the last six. (2019, 2017, 2015 and 2014, but not 2018 or 2016.)

A clear leader in all four columns... (Also my personal favourite, of the three I have read.)
