We are great lovers of book awards, we love to discuss them and look at them in depth. With the celebration of the well-deserved wins of women writers (predominantly women of colour) at the 2016 Hugo awards, the 1941 Retro Hugos were largely overlooked. On the one hand all the winners were white men but on the other in the majority of categories at least one female nominee made the top 10 (the drama, fan and graphic story categories lacked women created works).
Here I wanted to look at these texts in more depth and how well they shape up with the other nominees in this category.
Note: You can see more discussion of other eligible nominees at the Retro Hugo Women Livejournal
