2024 Hugo Award nominees are here

last month

And registering to vote was so easy this year! Last year I never succeeded at all despite several attempts. In addition there was a scandal about nominated books that were said to have been omitted to please the sponsoring country's government. It seems so peaceful this year.

Here is a list of the nominees for Best Novel. I won't bother listing any of the other categories, because this is the one that gets the most attention. I will probably vote in two or three other categories. There is a lot going on in our lives right now so I'm not sure how much time I will have.

Best Novel

  • The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi by Shannon Chakraborty
  • The Saint of Bright Doors by Vajra Chandrasekera
  • Some Desperate Glory by Emily Tesh
  • Starter Villain by John Scalzi
  • Translation State by Ann Leckie
  • Witch King by Martha Wells

I had already read Starter Villain and Translation State, both of which I enjoyed. Now I am about to start Witch King. Its author Martha Wells writes the Murderbot books, but this one looks more like some of her earlier work.
