All novels which have been nominated for an award are scored based on the number of award wins and nominations. The results are then sorted. This is not an attempt to list the best works in the

show more genre, just those which won the most awards. Since the proliferation of genre-related awards is a fairly recent phenomenon, these lists tend to favor more recent works.The
