Reviews of Philip K. Dick Award Winners

This is a list of Philip K. Dick Award winners, including ratings for those books that I've read and links to reviews where I've written one. This is a judged award awarded for the best original SF paperback published in the US. Only paperback and trade paperback originals are eligible, not books that were originally published in hardcover. The date given on this page is the year that the award was given, since I standardize all awards to the year of the award. It will therefore be one year later than the official date on the award, which reflects publication date.
