Leckie Wins Nebula Award: Chaos Averted

Ann Leckie was announced as the winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel.

Since Leckie was the winner picked by my prediction model, this means success for Chaos Horizon.

Leckie won the model not because of her award history—she has none—but because of the strong critical/reader reception of the book, and, most significantly, because of her dominant awards season performance. This year’s modeling shows how important things like Hugo nominations and other awards are for determining the winner.

Stay tuned for my upcoming Hugo prediction.
