2013 Hugo Voter Packet

Hugo rocket logo LoneStarCon 3, the 71st World Science Fiction Convention, produced the 2013 Hugo Voter Packet, an electronic package of nominated works graciously made available to voters by nominees and their publishers.

The 2013 Hugo Voter Packet was made available to Supporting, Attending, Military and Young Adult members of LoneStarCon 3 during the final ballot process to help inform them about the works under consideration before voting. As the ballot deadline has passed, the packet is now closed.

2013 Hugo Voter Packet Content

We are delighted that this year's Hugo Voter Packet again included submissions from every Hugo and John W. Campbell Award nominee (apart from the Dramatic Presentations), including all nominated works in the written fiction categories.

The cover montage below represents just part of the material which we were able to make available to LoneStarCon 3 members. Graphics are not available for all works in the Packet.

The full list of nominees can be found on a separate page.
