Wow! That is a whole lot of reading in a short amount of time. Hope you had some sliced cucumber on hand to rest your eyes a bit in between books. ;) Interesting observations regarding the current trends. I hadn't really thought about the lack of stories set in space recently. That is still the childhood impression I have of the term 'sci-fi', but I've personally only read one book with starships so far this year (aside from children's picture books, that is). Dystopia and steampunk are the two trends I seem to see most frequently in the YA sci-fi arena right now, and the conclusions you've drawn regarding the Hugo nominees seem to indicate that those trends are dominating the adult market right now too. Thanks for sharing your observations. :)
