The finalists for the 2014 Hugo Awards
and finalists for the 1939 Retrospective Hugo Awards
have been announced in advance of LonCon3
, the 2014 WorldCon of Science Fiction.
This year's ballot is particularly noteworthy for a few reasons:
First, A quirk of the Hugo rules means that if no individual work within a series is nominated for a Hugo individually the entire series may be nominated. Thus, despite none of the 14 novels in the series being deemed even potentially Hugo-worthy the entire series now has the potential to be awarded a Best Novel Hugo Award.
And second, in response to events in the field covered previously
on Metafilter, several hard right leaning authors have received enough nominations to reach the final ballot! Most notably the novellete "Opera Vita Aeterna” by Vox Day.
from John Scalzi.
