Book News

The 2015 Hugo Awards were announced at "Sasquan" The 73rd World Science Fiction Convention Spokane, Washington, USA.

A full list of the nominees can be found here, and a breakdown of how the voting went is available here. The Hugo Awards tend to suffer from some sort of controversy, and this year was no different. Special interest groups got together this year to block-nominate certain writers, editors and creators. Fans responded by nominating certain categories as ‘No Award’. This can be seen in the results.
