A list of all the major sf and fantasy award winners - Hugo, Nebula, Clarke, World Fantasy, Tiptree, Philip K. Dick, Stoker.
A few years ago I embarked on a Project to read all the Hugo and Nebula winners (which is proceeding in fits and starts), so I've read a bunch of these recently. The ones I've read are in bold; comments in italics. I've given ** to the ones I liked a lot (only the first time each is listed). Feel free to recommend others - my reading list can never be too long. :-P

What a wonderful project!

Do you mean this version of the Clifton?

Thanks! I didn't see that in my last search. (The book got almost universal bad reviews so I'm leaving it out of my project - along with Heinlein.)

I have a much older version of the 1955 winner (this one:
http://web2.airmail.net/tharvia/hugos_by_year/55.html)

Funny how often co-author Frank Riley finds his name omitted from official lists.

The book itself is eminently overlookable, as indeed was most of Clifton and Riley's work.

That would almost be worth having just for the cover art!

Ooh, I think you would really like Bridge of Birds.

Seconded. Barry Hughart's whole trilogy--Bridge of Birds, Eight Skilled Gentlemen, The Story of the Stone--kicks butt. It was going to be seven books; curse the screwups of the publishing industry that made him give up on his plan.

The three are, I believe, available as a hardcover omnibus with illustrations by Kaja Foglio.

I have to second this, I loved _Bridge of Birds_.

Thanks for the list! What an awesome idea, to read one's way through it. A fine adjunct to my hope to someday read my way through the St John's College Great Books List.

Have you read other Matt Ruff novels? I liked _Sewer, Gas and Electric_ quite a bit.

I have read that one. I liked it overall, but not as much as Set This House in Order.

I've compiled everyone's answers to this - hope you find it of interest.
