Nebula Award Winners part 1: The 1960s

Over the coming week I'm hoping to produce a companion piece to the gallery of Hugo Award-winning novels I produced in February 2012. As I am a collector of British paperbacks, the Bear Alley gallery will concentrate of British paperback editions. I may break that rule for where there was no British edition. There may be a few gaps towards the end as the number of books I'd like compared to the number of books I can have is dictated by my lack of cash. 

For a lengthy list of nominees, visit the Wikipedia page for the Nebula Awards for Best Novel. For more about the awards themselves, see here.
