Just saw that N.K. Jemisin won the #Hugo for best #scifi novel again. Will book 3 of her trilogy win next year?

Just saw that N.K. Jemisin won the Hugo for best novel again. Book one of the trilogy won last year and book two this year. Will book three win next year? Should the award be only given out to standalone books and series be only eligible for the new best series award?https://t.co/x4uzz047wR

  1. I couldn’t say as I’m not familiar with the author or the series so am no judge of its quality. Given the shenanigans in recent years over the voting process, it’s hard to know.

    Speaking of Lois, she was able to win the first “best series” award this year which will be a permanent award moving forward. The rule is the series must have a minimum of 3 books and one of them must have been published in the previous year.

  2. I’m wondering if this is due to the second novel really being “up there” in terms of quality or a fandom large following for the series as could be argued for Lois McMaster Bujold’s Hugo run for the Vorkosigan series way back in the day. Not that they were bad, but “the best”?
