Reviewing the Hugo Award Nominees: Best Novelette Category

So I've now essentially read every book/story nominated for the big four Hugo Categories this year.  For those who aren't aware (and if you're reading my reviews on this blog, I don't know how you aren't), the Hugo Awards are one of the biggest Science Fiction and Fantasy awards (arguably one of the big two, along with the Nebulas), and are awarded through an open voting process.  Anyone who at least buys a supporting membership at the Worldcon convention they're awarded at (for $40) is eligible to vote.

Note that if you buy a supporting membership, you gain access to a free giveaway of Hugo Nominated Material that contains nearly all (it's missing one best novel work, and that's it of the big four categories) of the works nominated for the Hugo this year.  The value of this is WELL OVER $40, so I highly recommend paying for this (we're talking like 20+ Novels, 5 comic trades, and much much more).

Anyhow, I'm going to be writing posts for each of the four big categories (and maybe a fifth for best graphic novel) and give my thoughts and reviews on the categories.  The Categories are Best Novel, Best Novella, Best Novelette, and Best Short Story, and for the most part, I've finished all of the nominees.  So without further ado, let's get to Best Novelette first.
