The John W. Campbell Award

The John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer is not a Hugo. It is voted for and presented alongside the Hugos, but the eligibility rules are not governed by the WSFS Constitution. The John W. Campbell Award is given to the best new science fiction or fantasy writer whose first work of science fiction or fantasy was published in a professional publication in the previous two years. For the 2013 award, which is presented at the World Science Fiction Convention (WorldCon), the qualifying work must have been published in 2011 or 2012.

  • Courtney Schafer [Paul]
  • Teresa Frohock [Paul]
  • Patrick: I am torn between Stina and Mur, once again. Both are wonderful and deserve a nomination and a win.
