  1. When you put a list of award winning novels together, it's a daunting for a first-time published author. This is a great article! I've actually read some of these novels. Check out my first and recently released novel, Long Journey to Rneadal. This exciting tale is a romantic action adventure in space and is more about the characters than the technology.

  2. Well, this list is just copied straight from other sites' lists of these awards and is easily available. I'm just doing it this way as it's a handy way for me to have them all in one space.

  3. I've thought about reading Stand on Zanzibar at some point, but I haven't heard of the rest.

  4. I've read the 1st of Banks' Culture novels and look forward to the rest. Of the ones on this list, they are the ones I'm most interested in right now. Wikipedia article about the Culture:
