1964 Hugo AwardThe 1964 Hugo Awards were given in Pacificon II in Oakland, California. (For earlier posts in this series, see Index.) It’s lovely to think that I was born in the year when Way Station (post) (aka Here Gather the Stars) won the Best Novel Hugo. I didn’t know anything about it at the time, obviously, but it makes me happy now. Way Station is a gentle pastoral hard science fiction novel with aliens and ideas and a quiet man going for walks and thinking. It isn’t really like anything much else, and I applaud the Pacificon voters for selecting such an excellent book. It’s in print in a gorgeous hardcover from Old Earth Books, and it’s in my library.
