Science Fiction Authors: A Research Guide

Major Awards

There are a number of awards given every year for the best science fiction novels, novellas, novelettes, and short stories, for services to the world of sf, and for career achievement. Most are sponsored by organizations of writers and/or fans. A comprehensive index to all major awards can be found at http://www.locusmag.com/SFAwards/. This includes information about the awards themselves—who sponsors them, who is eligible to vote, as well as issues and controversies. Information about winners and nominees can be accessed by prize, by author, or by year.

In this volume, the following major award winners are noted in each author entry:


Hugo Awards (http://www.wsfs.org/hugos.html)

Science Fiction Achievement Award, named after Hugo Gernsback, founder of Amazing Stories magazine in 1926, and widely regarded as the “father” of the science fiction genre. Awarded annually by the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS) for over fifty years in various categories, including best books, stories, dramatic works, professional, and fan activities. Voters represent the committed fan and professional sf community, with paid memberships to the annual World Science Fiction Conventions.

“Retro Hugos” were introduced in 1996 to recognize retroactively works and
people eligible fifty years prior to a current World Science Fiction Convention.
They’ve been awarded only three times, in 1996, 2001, and 2004.
