The Book Smugglers are finalists for the 2018 Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine! The Hugo Awards, presented annually since 1955, are voted on by members of the World Science Fiction Convention–aka Worldcon–which is also responsible for administering them each year. This year’s award ceremony will be held in San Jose in Thea’s home state of California, and we Smugglers could not be more excited to be included among the year’s finalists.
It’s tradition for Hugo Finalists to provide sample work in the year’s Voter Packet–this year, we’ve selected some of our favorite short stories, essays, and reviews for the 2018 packet. Whether or not you’re a voting member of Worldcon, we hope you’ll enjoy the selection of content we’ve put together below!
