Campbell (novel) & Sturgeon Awards 2009: Winners

Link. [via SF Scope]

Campbell (novel): Tie between Doctorow's "Little Brother" (download), & Ian MacLeod's "Song of Time".
Note there is another unrelated "Campbell Award" too - for "best writer", given during Hugo ceremonies.

Sturgeon (ss): James Alan Gardner's "The Ray Gun: A Love Story" (download from publisher's or author's site).

Of these, I've read Doctorow's & Gardner's stories. Doctorow's is a good one, & while I've not read any other Hugo novel nominee, I don't think it will be disgrace if "Little Brother" gets that too.
