April Books 4) The Snow Queen

4) The Snow Queen, by Joan D Vinge

That's it, folks; I've now read every single one of the winners of the Hugo Award for Best Novel. And it was a good one to finish up with. I have not read anything else by this author, though her ex-husband of course is ubiquitous these days (and I find his work difficult to get into). A great story of concealed clones, hidden knowledge, the interaction between cultures, and good pacing and characterisation. Kept me going through the jetlag.

At some point I will have to do a brief thumbnail page on all the Hugo winners now that I have actually read them.
