’s Hugo Award-eligible works

Named for Hugo Gernsback, the Hugo Awards are presented each year to outstanding works of science fiction, fantasy, horror, or related fiction genre published during the previous year. The winners are selected by the members of Worldcon. (This year’s convention is Aussiecon 4, in Melbourne, but members from last year are also eligible to nominate and vote; you need to at least buy a supporting membership for Aussiecon in order to participate in the awards process.)

The nominations period is open through this Saturday March 13th, 2010, and we wanted to bring to your attention the eligible works that had the honor of publishing in 2009. The ballot is here, and you may nominate up to five works in each category.
