Holy summer reading crunch Batman, the Hugo Ballot is out !!!!!

Lots to read before you hop on the plane to Glasgow, Scotland in early August (4-7). All 5 authors have never won the hugo or nebula and they are all UKers. I will host unofficial blog vote here in July with a prize bleep worth 20 Euros. Be sure to form an opinion, bias or whim before August 3.
The candidates for best novel are:

The Algebraist by Iain M. Banks
Iron Council by China Mieville
Iron Sunrise by Charles Stross
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
River of Gods by Ian McDonald

Well, I have to admit that it's the only one of the entries that I've read, but I'll go with Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. Very interesting, well written book (very long, as well). Unique in its approach and subject matter, too.
