N.B. Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.
The Hugo Awards, presented annually since 1955, are awarded for science fiction and fantasy writing. The Hugo Awards are voted on by members of the World Science Fiction Convention and administered by the World Science Fiction Society.
The Graphic story award is for a science fiction or fantasy story told in graphic form.
Note: It is possible for Hugo voters to vote "No Award" if they don't think that any of the nominees warrant an award. In years where "No Award" receives the most votes no award is given in that category.
