2018 Hugo Awards: Best Novelette

The third category on the Hugo ballot is Best Novelette:

A science fiction or fantasy story between 7,500 and 17,500 words that appeared for the first time in 2017.

A few years ago, there was some discussion of consolidating this category into the other short fiction categories, but the idea was pretty quickly rejected.  So I don’t see any changes being proposed here.

 

I’ve done a fair amount of reading at this length, so I’ve tentatively filled four of five slots on my ballot:

 

To find a contender for that final slot, I plan to take a look at some of the novelettes in the following sources:

  • Cosmic Powers edited by John Joseph Adams
  • The Book of Swords edited by Gardner Dozois
  • Infinity Wars edited by Jonathan Strahan
  • Asimov’s stories on the Locus Recommended Reading List

Any other suggestions?

 

One resource I use to find short fiction is Rocket Stack Rank.  Not only do they give their own reviews, but they highlight stories recommended by other sources and provide a lot of related information.
