The Hugo Award for Best Novel

The Science Fiction Achievement Awards, or Hugo Awards, are selected annually by popular vote of the World Science Fiction Society. Established in 1953 and named for Hugo Gernsback, an early science fiction publisher, the awards are given for the best science fiction and to individuals for contributions to science fiction writing, art, and publishing. The Best Novel category winners are listed below. (This award description was taken from NoveList, a database dedicated to helping readers find fiction titles, award winning books, and similar titles and authors.)  Visit the Hugo Awards official website for more information about this award.

All of these titles are located in the Adult Science Fiction section of the Library unless otherwise noted.
