CROWS CONTEND FOR HUGO AWARD

April 5, 2006

The members of the LACon IV and Interaction worldcons have nominated A Feast for Crows for the Hugo Award for the Best Novel of 2005. The Hugo is the oldest and most prestigious award in science fiction and fantasy, and it is a thrill, as ever, to be on the ballot.
coverThe other finalists in the Best Novel category are Learning the World by Ken MacLeod (Orbit; Tor), Old Man’s War by John Scalzi (Tor), Accelerando by Charles Stross (Ace; Orbit), and Spin by Robert Charles Wilson (Tor).

For the rest of this year’s Hugo nominees, check out my “Not a Blog” page, where I have posted the full list.

All members of LACon IV are eligible to vote for the Hugo Awards. To join the convention, as either an attending or supporting member, go to their website at http://www.laconiv.org/ . The Hugo winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in Anaheim, California, on the evening of Saturday, August 26.

It is always an honor to be nominated for a Hugo, especially in the novel category (the “Big One,” as someone once dubbed it, can’t think who). So many good books are published each year that every place on the ballot is sharply contested. This marks the third time one of my books has been nominated for the Best Novel Hugo. Dying of the Light lost the award in 1978 to Frederik Pohl’s Gateway, and A Storm of Swords was crushed in 2001 by J.K. Potter’s megabestseller Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
