The award for Best Novel was established in memory of United States writer/editor/publisher August Derleth, with the physical award consisting of a statuette of the god Cthulhu (from the works of H. P. Lovecraft), made of white ivory and supported upon a wooden base. The first winner of this award was The Knight of the Swords by Michael Moorcock.
