Hugo Anthologies

Tagged: Publication

Most of the Hugo award-winning short fiction up to the 1994 awards has been collected in a series of Hugo Winners Anthologies initially edited by Isaac Asimov, beginning with The Hugo Winners (anth 1962). A notable though understandable omission is Brian Aldiss's book-length Hothouse story sequence (February-December 1961 F&SF), which as a whole won the 1962 short-fiction Hugo. The anthologies' overall title and editorship changed with the sixth volume, The New Hugo Winners: Award-Winning Science Fiction Stories (anth 1989) edited by Isaac Asimov and Martin H Greenberg. The Super Hugos (anth 1992) edited by Martin H Greenberg is a "best of the best" selection of ten past winners, based on a poll of 1992 Hugo voters.

Two further Hugo Winners volumes appeared after Asimov's death, The New Hugo Winners Volume III (anth 1994) edited by Connie Willis and Martin H Greenberg, and The New Hugo Winners Volume IV (anth 1997) edited by Gregory Benford and Martin H Greenberg. The Hugo anthology tradition then fell into disuse for some years until The Hugo Award Showcase: 2010 Volume (anth 2010) edited by Mary Robinette Kowal, a selection from the works published in 2008 which were nominated for and won Hugos in 2009.
