Gold Medallion Book Awards

[Gold Medallion Book Awards]Presented annually since 1978 by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association, the Gold Medallion Book Awards are awarded to recognise the highest quality in Christian books, based on considerations of content, literary quality, design, and significance of contribution.

The books listed here are Gold Medallion Book Award fiction category winners which can be classified as "speculative fiction": science fiction, fantasy, or horror.

Hugo Awards

[Hugo Award] Presented annually since 1953 by the World Science Fiction Society based on a popular vote by members of each year's World Science Fiction Convention (in other words, science fiction and fantasy fans.) Categories include Novel, Novella, Novelette, Short Story, Related Book, and Dramatic Presentation. Hugo voting is not based on a "first past the post" system. Each ballot allows first, second, and subsequent choices, as well as an option for "no award." Votes are analysed, with the bottom candidates dropped off in each round, until either a nominee or the "no award" choice gains more than 50% of the vote. Thus, in some years, when no nominee gains more votes than the "no award" choice, the Hugo Award is no given in that category for that year.
