$300 Worth of Books for Only $50: The 2012 Hugo Voter Packet Has Been Released

Every year those with a membership to the Hugos are rewarded with pretty amazing Voter Packet containing the various nominees in each category (excluding Best Dramatic Presentation); the packet includes 5 complete novels and a ton of other awesome prose.

That’s over $300 worth of science fiction and fantasy (at minimum), in PDF form, for the most part (there are some epub files, as well), for a voting membership that costs $50.

Visit Chicon 7, this year’s World Con for more information on Hugo voting memberships, the packet, and the awards.

This release includes all of the fiction categories (Novel, Novella, Novelette, Short Story and John W. Campbell Award) plus Best Professional Artist; with will the remaining categories to be added over the next few days. (The Best Fancast nominees are not included in the download files but are already freely available online, with a separate page here.)
