Hugo Award for Best Novelette

The Hugo Awards are given annually for the best science fiction or fantasy works. The awards are named after Hugo Gernsback, the founder of the pioneering science fiction magazine Amazing Stories, and given in various categories.

Winners of the Hugo Award for best novelette are presented here.

About this award

According to Article 3.3.3 of the Constitution of the World Science Fiction Society, a novelette is "A science fiction or fantasy story of between seven thousand five hundred (7,500) and seventeen thousand five hundred (17,500) words." Hugo Awards are also given in other fiction categories for works which are shorter (stories) or longer (novellas or novels).

Awards given in one year are for works published during the previous calendar year.
