Reading the Hugo's novelette category...

I've read my first nominee from beginning to end. The central idea was interesting, but it could have been used in a much better manner.

About 20 pages into my second nominee in the Hugo's novelette category, I started skimming. A bit after that. I thought that maybe I was the problem, but I went to see what someone else had already written about this story. It confirmed that it's not my imagination that the story is incomprehensible if I'm not already familiar with the setting. I decided to stop reading it.

Onward to the next tales.
