So the votes are in, and it was a bad day for the Puppies. Here are the winners:
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.
“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.
John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer
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.
From Nebula and Hugo Award–nominated Carolyn Ives Gilman comes Dark Orbit, a compelling novel featuring alien contact, mystery, and murder.
Reports of a strange, new habitable planet have reached the Twenty Planets of human civilization. When a team of scientists is assembled to investigate this world, exoethnologist Sara Callicot is recruited to keep an eye on an unstable crewmate.
