Hugo finalists announced
The Hugo award conference was set to take place in New Zealand this year, but due to the pandemic will be digital only. I had not planned to attend, but had signed up for a voting membership again this year. I know that there are some SF readers on this forum so I am listing the books nominated for best novel.
- The City in the Middle of the Night, by Charlie Jane Anders (Tor; Titan)
- Gideon the Ninth, by Tamsyn Muir (Tor.com Publishing)
- The Light Brigade, by Kameron Hurley (Saga; Angry Robot UK)
- A Memory Called Empire, by Arkady Martine (Tor; Tor UK)
- Middlegame, by Seanan McGuire (Tor.com Publishing)
- The Ten Thousand Doors of January, by Alix E. Harrow (Redhook; Orbit UK)
I have previously read The Ten Thousand Doors, and am just now starting Middlegame.
There are a number of other categories, some fan fiction based. I don't read of vote on those. I do like to read and vote for short story, novella, and novelette; sometimes the YA award and sometimes the new author award. If anyone is interested in these categories, they can be found at https://www.tor.com/2020/04/07/announcing-the-2020-hugo-award-finalists/
