Locus Award

The Locus Awards have been given since 1971 by Locus, the Newspaper of the Science Fiction Field.

The publication began as a news fanzine in 1968, and the awards were created by the magazine’s editor/publisher, Charles N. Brown. The awards cover most areas of SF publishing, and are voted upon by the readers of Locus. The annual event usually attracts one of the largest vote totals of any SF award. The actual physical awards have varied from year to year.

Some authorities have argued that the Locus Awards actually are more representative of the best work in the field than the more celebrated Hugos and Nebulas, drawing as they do upon larger vote totals.

The Locus Awards: Thirty Years of the Best in Science Fiction and Fantasy, edited by Brown and Jonathan Strahan, was published in 2004.
