Hugo Finalists 2017

Worldcon 75 will announce the 2017 Hugo Award Finalists at 10 AM EDT. Stay tuned for futher details.

2017 Hugo Finalists of Note:

  • Best New Writer: J. Mulrooney, An Equation of Almost Infinite Complexity
  • Best Fan Artist: Mansik Yang
  • Best Fan Artist: Alex Garner
  • Best Fancast: The Rageoholic
  • Best Fanzine: Castalia House blog
  • Best Fan Writer: Jeffro Johnson
  • Best Fan Writer: Chuck Tingle
  • Best Semiprozine: Cirsova
  • Best Editor – Long Form: Vox Day
  • Best Short Story: “An Unimaginable Light” by John C. Wright
  • Best Novelette: “Alien Stripper Boned From Behind By the T-Rex” by Stix Hiscock
  • Best Novella: “This Census-Taker” by China Mieville
  • Best Novel: The Obilisk Gate by NK Jemisin
Best Series is pretty gruesome. Only Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga is one that is worthy of any note. Best Novel is even worse; as expected, Jemisin should be the odds-on favorite to win her second straight Best Novel Award. That is arguably a bigger joke than “Alien Stripper Boned From Behind By the T-Rex”, which is why it behooves us to wholeheartedly support The Obilisk Gate.

Still. Not. Tired.
