On Awards

Adam Roberts lays down the law on awards from the Man Booker to the Hugo:

“I’m saying that award judges, or voters, need to believe, or at least to suspend their disbelief, that it is meaningful to talk of the best book of the year–to think not that you are making purely subjective and arbitrary decisions but on the contrary are worthwhile and possible attempts at getting the drop on posterity. It can be done.”
