Reading the Hugo Awards finalists

So many great writers and editors, so many fantastic stories and publications, so much awesomeness. The list of Hugo Awards finalists is pretty darn amazing this year. Some of my personal favourites are on this list, and some (a lot…) I have yet to read.

Here is a TBR list with links to most of the nominated works. (My list focuses on the books & stories… for editors, artists, shows, movies, etc., check out the full list!)

The 2017 Hugo Awards will be presented at Worldcon 75 in Helsinki, Finland, on August 11, 2017.
