Some award-winning book lists

In the last couple of hours I've tried to find the book-list of the Nobel Prize Winners for Literature and I find only their names and why they won but not the name of the book. As well as for Pulitzer or Hugo Awards. Can you please help me?

Nobel Prizes for literature are awarded for lifetime achievements and contributions to literature - hence for the author's entire output. There is no single work associated with the award.

Pulitzer prize for fiction from 1918-2011.

Hugo award winners, with each year as a separate link.
World Fantasy Award, 1975-2011

SFWA's Nebula awards, 1965-2009

HRA's Bram Stoker awards, 1987-2010

RWA's Rita awards, 1982-2011

Fictionwise's dropdown collection of award winners, many of which are now empty lists (because agency pricing stripped their inventory) but can be used to search for other winners of those awards.

While their site is horribly arranged for actually finding anything, Google turned up the list: Previous Years' Winners. The 2012 Winners haven't been added yet.

That's my understanding, although I thought there were a few given for specific works. Although that may have been the rationale of the prize that I read.

There's also the Orange prize,the PEN / Faulkner award and The Giller Prize. Yes the Giller is funded by a bank who actually branded it and the website lending about 0 credibility to anyone that hasn't followed it for years.

I've not usually been let down by PEN also-rans. Giller ones are hit and miss for me and Booker ones are usually quite good. At least for the ones I've read.

I've had nothing but good/great experiences with titles that make the Booker short-list

For SF/F/Horror prize lists, I recommend Worlds Without End, who have a nice tracker thing that keeps score for you.
