The Hugo Award for Best Novelette is one of the Hugo Awards given each year for science fiction or fantasy stories published in English or translated into English during the previous calendar year. The novelette award is available for works of fiction of between 7,500 and 17,500 words; awards are also given out in the short story, novella and novel categories.

The Hugo Award for Best Novelette was first awarded in 1955, and was subsequently awarded in 1956, 1958, and 1959, lapsing in 1960. The category was reinstated for 1967 through 1969, before lapsing again in 1970; after returning in 1973, it has remained to date. In addition to the regular Hugo awards, beginning in 1996 Retrospective Hugo Awards, or "Retro Hugos", have been available to be awarded for years 50, 75, or 100 years prior in which no awards were given.[1] To date, Retro Hugo awards have been given for novelettes for 1939, 1946, 1951, and 1954.[2]

Hugo Award nominees and winners are chosen by supporting or attending members of the annual World Science Fiction Convention, or Worldcon, and the award presentation constitutes its central event. The selection process is defined in the World Science Fiction Society Constitution as instant-runoff voting with five nominees, except in the case of a tie. These five novelettes on the ballot are the five most-nominated by members that year, with no limit on the number of stories that can be nominated.[1] Initial nominations are made by members in January through March, while voting on the ballot of five nominations is performed roughly in April through July, subject to change depending on when that year's Worldcon is held.[3] Worldcons are generally held near the start of September, and are held in a different city around the world each year.[4][5]

During the 53 nomination years, 155 authors have had works nominated; 40 of these have won, including coauthors and Retro Hugos. Poul Anderson and Harlan Ellison both have received the most Hugos for Best Novelette at three, while eight other authors have won twice. Mike Resnick has had the most nominations at eight, and Ursula K. Le Guin and Greg Egan have been nominated seven times each. Fourteen other authors have been nominated at least four times, while Egan has the most number of nominations without winning.

Winners and nominees[edit]

In the following table, the years correspond to the date of the ceremony, rather than when the novelette was first published. Each year links to the corresponding "year in literature". Entries with a blue background have won the award; those with a white background are the nominees on the short-list. If the novelette was originally published in a book with other stories rather than by itself or in a magazine, the book title is included after the publisher's name.

Retro Hugos[edit]

Beginning with the 1996 Worldcon, the World Science Fiction Society created the concept of "Retro Hugos", in which the Hugo award could be retroactively awarded for years 50, 75, or 100 years before the current year, if no awards were originally given that year.[1] Retro Hugos have been awarded four times, for 1939, 1946, 1951, and 1954.[Note 2] The 1939 Retro Hugos were awarded 75 years later, the other three were given 50 years later.[2] The next year that Retro Hugos can be awarded is 2015, for 1940.[1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ In the 1958 awards, the category was called "Best Novel or Novelette", with the winner as the novel The Big Time. No novella category was presented that year.
  2. ^ Although no "Best Novelette" Hugo was awarded at the 1957 convention, Hugos were awarded in other categories, hence there was no "Retro Hugo" for 1957 awarded in 2007.
