What do California Chrome and Ancillary Justice have in common? Last week, Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Justice won the prestigious Nebula Award for Best Novel voted upon by The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The novel has also won the Arthur C. Clarke award for the UK’s best science fiction novel. Let’s not jinx its possible Triple Crown status as it is a Hugo award nominee as well.
What is this novel about? Ancillary Justice is the first book in Leckie’s space opera trilogy called the “Imperial Radch.” The novel starts as artificial intelligence Breq, who once controlled a massive starship and its crew, is now isolated in a single frail human body, while seeking answers to her questions.
