2015 Hugo Awards Announced

On Saturday evening, August 22nd, the 2015 Hugo Award Winners were announced during the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention, Sasquan, in Spokane, Washington. The Best Novel award went to The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu, translated by Ken Liu. 

The 2015 Hugo Award Winners Announced post includes a statement related to the giving of 'No Award' in a number of categories. "The members of the World Science Fiction Society rejected the slate of finalists in five categories, giving No Award in Best Novella, Short Story, Related Work, Editor Short Form, and Editor Long Form. This equals the total number of times that WSFS members have presented No Award in the entire history of the Hugo Awards, most recently in 1977.

Voting statistics, along with a list of all the finalists, showing the winners highlighted in Red, can be found at 2015 Hugo Awards

And if your from the Midwest and were not aware, MidAmericaCon II, the 74th World Science Fiction Convention, will be held in Kansas City, Missouri in 2016 from August 17-21!
