The following list will be updated over the next few months as we read, watch, and listen to Hugo-eligible works for 2023. These are not necessarily what we plan to nominate, but rather works that at least one member of the Edmonton Hugo Book Club has enjoyed and believes to be worth consideration. We appreciate any additional suggestions in the comments.Updated on January 29, 2023

Best 2022 SFF novella I've read so far: Lure by Tim McGregor.
Moonfellows by Danger Slater was just batcrap crazy. Think A Trip to the Moon by way of Doctor Strangelove and Forrest Gump.
I've also heard really good things about The Reyes Incident by Briana Morgan.
A couple of suggestions: Novel: Babel by R.F. Kuang, Locklands by Robert Jackson Bennett, and Nettle and Bone by T. Kingfisher. The first two are the best books I have read so far this year.ReplyDelete
Series: The Founders Trilogy, Robert Jackson Bennett
Dramatic Presentation Short: Stranger Things, "Dear Billy," House of the Dragon, "Driftmark," Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, "Memento Mori."
