By / August 23, 2015 / no comments

So the votes are in, and it was a bad day for the Puppies. Here are the winners:

Best Novel

The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu (trans Ken Liu)
This only made the shortlist because Marko Kloos, who was on the original Puppies slate, withdrew.

Best Novella

No Award

Best Novelette

“The Day the World Turned Upside Down” by Thomas Olde Heuvelt (trans Lia Belt)
This was the only novelette on the ballot that wasn’t on the Puppies slate.

This was the only category in which there was no Puppies slate.

Wesley Chu

In every single category, No Award came above anything that was on the Puppies slates.

Two other statistics worth noting: In the entire history of the Hugo Awards, No Award has won five times before today. Today, No Award won five times.

Secondly, in the four fiction categories, No Award won twice, and translated works won twice. This is the first time a translated novel has ever won the Hugo Award.

I’ll make further comments in another post, but for now let us offer our heartiest congratulations to all of the winners.
