Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer

Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer

The Hugo Awards, the most prestigious awards in science fiction fandom, are given every year for science fiction or fantasy, and related areas in fandom, art and dramatic presentation, of the previous year, by members of the annual World Science Fiction Convention ("Worldcon").

According to Article 3.3.13 of the WSFS constitution, a fan writer is "Any person whose writing has appeared in semiprozines or fanzines or in generally available electronic media during the previous calendar year." [http://www.wsfs.org/bm/const-2006.html#hugo WSFS Constitution – Hugo Awards] as of 2006]

What constitutes a semiprozine is defined by the rather complicated Article 3.3.11, as "Any generally available non-professional publication devoted to science fiction or fantasy which by the close of the previous calendar year has published four (4) or more issues, at least one (1) of which appeared in the previous calendar year, and which in the previous calendar year met at least two (2) of the following criteria: (1) had an average press run of at least one thousand (1000) copies per issue,(2) paid its contributors and/or staff in other than copies of the publication,(3) provided at least half the income of any one person,(4) had at least fifteen percent (15%) of its total space occupied by advertising,(5) announced itself to be a semiprozine.

In contrast, a fanzine, according to Article 3.3.12 is "Any generally available non-professional publication devoted to science fiction, fantasy, or related subjects which by the close of the previous calendar year has published four (4) or more issues, at least one (1) of which appeared in the previous calendar year, and which does not qualify as a semiprozine."

While a Hugo Award for Best Fanzine had existed in various forms since 1955, it was not until 1967 that Hugo Awards were created specifically for fan writing and fan art.

Dave Langford has won the Best Fan Writer Hugo more than anyone else, 21 times as of 2007. He has been nominated every year since 1979 and won in 1985, 1987, and from 1989 through 2007.
