Encouraging news coming from the land of Science Fiction writing. Congratulations to all the winners, I have some new books to put on my reading list. Via the Verge:

This year, women almost completely swept the Hugo Awards, taking home the top prizes for literature in the science fiction community. That’s particularly notable, given how the awards have been increasingly recognizing works from female and minority creators.

This year’s sweep by female creators seems to be a strong repudiation of anti-diversity groups. 2017 also marked the year the ceremony earned its own award: a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records certified that the Hugos are the longest-running science fiction awards ever.

The Best Novel Hugo went to N.K. Jemisin, for The Obelisk Gate, a novel set in the midst of a magical apocalypse.

Head to the Verge to see all the winners and nominations.
