Charts showing SF&F award finalists and their rating counts on Goodreads

Last updated 2020-08-30; see below for the full change history.

Click on the thumbnail images below to go to the full size interactive charts.

Please read the About page before contacting me with any questions, comments, rants, etc about these charts. (I'd love to hear any feedback people might have, but there's no point in wasting both of our time enquiring about something that's already in hand.)

The charts are designed for viewing on screens of 1920x1080 or higher resolution. The interactive features are intended for use with mouse hovering and clicking, but you can just about get away with a touch screen if that's all you've got - it might be a bit fiddly though?

First public release.
Regenerated charts, as some books (notably Ender's Game) were displaying incorrect figures due to wrong editions being picked up; link to commentary on BFA by Stephen Theaker. TODO: Update supporting blurb based on comments/feedback at File 770.
Hover over the book dots or the finalists table to see the history of that author in the given award/category; minor blurb and commentary tweaks; lots of behnd-the-scenes code improvements that should reducem the possibility of wrong rating counts being displayed.
Added preview images of the charts to the landing page (access logs indicate a non-trivial number of visitors not clicking through to any pages, hopefully this will be more involving?); added more content to the About page, other tweaks.
Regenerated with latest ISFDB data to pick up all (?) of the 2019 award finalists. Shouldn't be any visible functional change, but a fair bit of code has been reworked to support generating these charts for datasets other than award finalists, so apologise and please Tweet me if you see anything broken. (None of the non-award charts have yet been published, as I'm still fine-tuning things, but they cover things like all books reviewed in particular magazines, books from particular publishers, books by particular authors, etc.)
Updated with 2020 data. Added Goodreads Choice and Kitschies; removed Seiun Best Translated Award due to weird display glitches, which on checking, were present last year but which I never noticed at the time.
