Reviews of Prix Aurora Award Winners

This is a list of Prix Aurora Award winners for best novel in English, including ratings for those books that I've read and links to reviews where I've written one. This award is for the best science fiction or fantasy novel or fiction collection written by a Canadian author and published in Canada and is voted on by the members of the Canadian national science fiction and fantasy convention.

Prior to 1989, this was the award for Best Outstanding Work. Between 1989 and 2011, this was the Award for Best Long Form. From 2011 on, it's the award for Best Novel. In all cases, this is the English category; there are separate awards given for French language works.
