YMMV: Walter Jon Williams

  • Award Snub: For almost 20 years, he was the Peter O'Toole of literary sci-fi: tons of nominations, but no wins. He finally picked up a Nebula Award for Best Novelette in 2001 and another for Best Novella in 2005, but his novels continue to be criminally underappreciated by the awards committees. None of them have ever won a major award, and only three have ever even been nominated.
