AUTHOR RANKING BY LITERARY FICTION AWARDS (Version 1)

This author ranking is a simple count of the number of fiction awards each author received.  For brevity's sake, I only included authors with 2 or more awards.  Visit this site to see the complete list.

The list is heavily weighted in recent American and English Literature, and considers the following awards:

This ranking was designed for personal use and is not meant to be statistically or theoretically sound; it is just a place to start.

If you would like to see a list that includes the respective awards for each novel, please see my other page, Version 2.
