Oops, I’m a month late with this, but the 2009 Hugo Award nominees have been posted. The novel shortlist is a strong field, with entries from Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, and Charlie Stross. Here is the shortlist:
- Anathem by Neal Stephenson (Morrow; Atlantic UK)

Other nominees here.
Interesting to note that Stephen Moffat picks up his fourth nomination in four years for a Doctor Who episode, this time for the “Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead” double. This follows wins in 2006 for “The Empty Child”, in 2007 for “Girl in the Fireplace”, and 2008 for “Blink”.
Winners will be announced at the World Science Fiction Convention in Montréal in August.
