It’s a great day for science fiction at the University of Illinois Press. We’re pleased to announce that Iain M. Banks by Paul Kincaid has been nominated for the 2018 Hugo Awards in the Best-Related Work category!
The Hugo Awards are one of speculative fiction’s most prestigious prizes. Named for Amazing Stories editor Hugo Gernsback and first handed out in 1953, they recognize the best works in science fiction and fantasy literature each year. The awards are overseen by the World Science Fiction Society and are selected by members of the World Science Fiction Convention (known as Worldcon).
This year’s awards will be presented at WorldCon 76, which will be held in San Jose, California between August 16th and 20th.
And in more good news, Iain M. Banks has also been awarded the British Science Fiction Association award for Best Non-Fiction!
Congratulations Paul Kincaid!
