In a Rocky Mountain News profile of Connie Willis, the article mentions that the author has the distinction of being the writer with most Hugo and Nebula award wins.

I though it might be fun (because this is how science fiction geeks have fun) to see who followed her, based on this handy data from Locus Online. I found 15 other writers who received more than 5 wins.

Listed below are the 16 writers, the total number of Hugo and Nebula award wins they’ve earned, and the total number of Hugo and Nebula award nominations they’ve received.

  1. Connie Willis (15 wins, 36 nominations)
  2. Poul Anderson (10 wins, 27 nominations)
  3. Harlan Ellison (10 wins, 33 nominations)
  4. Joe Haldeman (10 wins, 16 nominations)
  5. Ursula K. Le Guin (10 wins, 37 nominations)
