Hugo Awards Eligible Series 2017 (Special Category for 2017)

The Hugo Awards are the annual awards presented by the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS), honoring the best of science fiction and fantasy, across 15 different categories, from the calendar year prior to that year’s World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon). This year Worldcon 75 will include a special Hugo category for “Best Series” in the 2017 Hugo Awards, with nomination and voting the same as for the permanent categories.

The Best Series Award has the following descriptor on the Hugo Nominations Ballot" A multi-volume science fiction or fantasy story, unified by elements such as plot, characters, setting, and presentation, which has appeared in at least three (3) volumes consisting of a total of at least 240,000 words by the close of the calendar year 2016, at least one of which was published in 2016. If any series and a subset series thereof both receive sufficient nominations to appear on the final ballot, only the version which received more nominations shall appear.

For those among us who would like to nominate and vote for the Hugo Awards, having access to a good list can be an important resource. A list of eligible works can help refresh our memory about series we love which might have had a new entry early in 2016, and about whose eligibility we may now be fuzzy. Additionally, this list can also clue us about series that don't get a lot of buzz but which may merit Hugo Award recognition.

From the Hugo Awards FAQ: All Awards are given for work in a given year, in this case the year 2016. Individual works are eligible only in their first year of publication. For people and serialized publications (TV series, comics and sometimes even whole novels are sometimes published in multiple parts making up a complete story arc) the Award is given for all achievements in the year in question. Please note that if a book is first published in hardcover and then later in paperback then it is eligible only for the year in which the hardback was published. Works eligible for the 2017 Hugo Awards are either first published in the US or first published in English translation in 2016, or first published in 2015 in English in a country other than the US if it did not make the ballot in 2016.

Before you hit ADD, please make sure your entry is 1) part of a series, and 2) the entry is the work in the series that was puiblished in 2016.

AGAIN, YOU ARE NOT LISTING ALL THE BOOKS IN A SERIES. YOU ARE LISTING THE WORK FROM A SERIES OF THREE OR MORE BOOKS THAT WAS PUBLISHED IN 2016.
