16 SF/F Authors with The Highest Number of Hugo and Nebula Award Wins
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.
