The Victorian Hugos: 1885+

Over at, Jess Nevins has been publishing a fascinating series on which novels and stories might have won Hugo awards--if there had been Hugo awards back in the 1880s.  His discussions range around works of (proto-) science fiction, fantasy and horror, and are well worth reading. He intends the series (eventually) to cover the years 1885 to 1930, and he's off to a good start with five years already covered in the last couple of months.  Here are the direct links to each year: 

And another recent article by Jess will likely interest readers of Wormwoodiana (and it's nice to see the very strange novel Doctor Transit get some attention): 

All recommended!
