The nominees for the Hugo 2018 Awards were announced today, representing the best science fiction and fantasy literature published in 2017.
The Hugo Awards are one of the most prestigious prizes of speculative fiction. Named by the Amazing Stories editor, Hugo Gernsback, and delivered for the first time in 1953, each year they recognize the best works in science fiction and fantasy literature. The awards are supervised by the World Science Fiction Society and selected by members of the World Science Fiction Convention (known as Worldcon). Another set of awards, the Retrospective Hugo Awards, recognizes works published before the beginning of the Hugos (this year, for works published in 1943).
Last year, women almost completely swept the awards: N.K. Jemisin won Hugo for Best Novel for his book The Obelisk Gate, along with authors Seanan McGuire (for his novel Every Heart a Doorway), Ursula Vernon (for his novel The Tomato Thief) and Amal El-Mohtar (for his story short) Stations of glass and iron). Women and authors of color are again strongly represented in all categories.
This year's awards will be presented at WorldCon 76, which will be held in San Jose, California, between August 16 and 20. The award ceremony will be organized by the conventions of Guest Artist of Honor John Picacio on August 19.
Here is the full list of nominees for the 2018 award.
