Resources

There are a lot of great websites that contain important information on the Hugo and Nebula awards. Here are some of the best:

The Official Hugo Awards Site
The Official Nebula Awards Site

The Long List of Worldcons contains some great attendance data for the Worldcon (they award the Hugos.

Science Fiction Award Database: The easiest and most reliable place to look up past winners.
Internet Speculative Fiction Database: A great website for looking up publication information.

The always useful Locus Magazine “Forthcoming Books” page.

Here’s one of my posts on Declined Hugo and Nebula and Other SFF Nominations.

And here are some my blank Hugo and Nebula data sets, so you can run your own stats.

Here are some various pre-existing analyses of the Hugos and Nebulas that I’ve found interesting and helpful:
Nicholas Whyte’s website: Whyte has some interesting breakdowns of the Hugo and Nebulas by age, by joint wins, and other data. He also blogs quite frequently, including about various SFF awards, at his website.
Jed Hartman’s Gender Breakdown: Hartman has some great data on the Hugo and gender demographics, that spans all the Hugo fiction categories, not just the novels. Updated yearly.
Dreaming About Other Worlds: Aaron Pound also gives a comprehensive look at gender in the Hugo awards in this post.
Staffer’s Book Review and the Voting System: Justin Landon provides an excellent breakdown of how the Hugo preferential voting system works, as well as a sharp analysis of the 2014 awards. Langdon also provides a useful take on the 2013 awards.
Jo Walton’s Revisiting the Hugos Series: Walton provides a detailed analysis of every Hugo award from the beginning (1953) to 2000.

Gender and SFF Awards: A comprehensive study, complete with charts.

Rocket Stack Rank: Provides a comprehensive breakdown of how the Locus Recommended Reading list correlates with Hugo nominations.

Pew Research has a good “snapshot” of American reading habits for 2013.

Sales numbers:
All time SFF sales by author by Wertzone.
Books of the century from a UC-Berkeley website, including some SFF novels.

I’ll add more links as I come up with them. If you’ve know of anything I should add, let me know.

    Your interesting site would be more useful with a search function…unless I missed it.

    Your Googledoc spreadsheet compiling the list of award nominees is a resource that should be here.
