Before I launch into a discussion of the legendary Dune, I do want to mention that I’ve decided to review the Nebulas as well (at least for a while). The Science Fiction Writers Association members vote on the Nebulas, compared to the convention-goers who decide the Hugo. Sixteen novels have won both awards, including the first Nebula winner in 1965, Dune. Also, the two awards have different schedules, so there will usually be a disparity in the year. Anyway, I think it could be interesting to compare the types of novels that win each award when they do differ.
