Post Kindle Store Fantasy Scorecard

Attached is a PDF containing all World Fantasy award winners. Each book that can be found in the Kindle Store has the store link provided. The score is the average of the number of books that can be purchased through the Kindle storefront (ie: If all books were found, the score would be 100%).

I'll update this periodically. Note the new quick-links to check if a missing book has become available.


Score as of 2/09/2008: 30%

The "Tooth and Claw" available for the Kindle is a Star Trek book, not the Walton novel.

Too bad... I was going to by it and read it!

Taking a quick look, seems that Sony might have the same list of eBooks for the 500/505. To be 100% sure, I'd have to search for each eBook.

I didn't look to see if Sony has the ones from this year but Sony does have a convenient listing of titles that are award winners and nominees that they sell, including the World Fantasy awards from this and previous years.

vivaldirules,

Wow nice sony store feature! The selection is dreadful by comparison however. Only a handful of hugo and nebula winners, etc.

I may add nominated books to the list.

I like the awards lists, too. I find I'm always looking for good things to read (not that I don't have hundreds of books that I have yet to read) and the awards lists are a good place to browse. You're right about the missing titles. Sony (and Amazon, too) need to get on the stick and make them all for sale now.

Amen to that. Even the kindle with ~200% more award winners is only at something like 30%. Pretty sad for ebook fans, regardless of device.

Great feature though. Man I wish amazon had that list setup. Would have saved me a lot of time

Dugbug, if you want all winners and nominees in all categories for all years for the World Fantasy Awards you can see them here. I'm sure there are other sites that have similar listings for other awards.

No, I was refering to the feature of the store. The kindle store does not provide that kind of search.
