77 Years of Sci-fi and Fantasy


Maybe you’ve heard of it.  It’s kind of a big deal in science fiction and fantasy circles.

It’s the yearly convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS) and is hosted by non-profit fan organizations all over the globe who bid for the privilege of bringing Worldcon to their city.  This year, Worldcon 77 (That’s right.  77 years of sci-fi/fantasy fans gathering to celebrate the authors and stories they love.) was held in Dublin, Ireland.

The main event at Worldcon since 1953 has been the Hugo Award announcements.  The Hugo is the highest of prizes for science fiction and fantasy authors.  WSFS members (those who pay membership dues) nominate and vote for their favorite sci-fi/fantasy novels, stories, screenplays, artwork, etc.  Winners are announced at a gala ceremony on the last night of the convention.

This year, that night was two weeks ago, Sunday, August 18th.

As lovers of science fiction and fantasy, Flash Fiction Online would like to congratulate this year’s worthy winners.
