The Hugo Award Novels, 2: 1955, They'd Rather Be Right

This entry is going to be a bit of a placeholder for now, since it is difficult to find a copy of the 1955 winner for best novel, Mark Clifton and Frank Riley's They'd Rather Be Right.

The little buzz I have come across is that this is typically considered the worst novel to have won a Hugo ... which at least partially explains its scarcity.

The Boston Public Library has a copy, but I will have to go there to read it.

It's only an impression, but this thing sounds like a dire relic from some of Astounding Science Fiction's not-so stellar years (when John W. Campbell was getting into Dianetics, maybe?)
