Comments: After the chaos of the previous several years, including the strange reporting of the non-winning nominees in 1979, the Campbell Awards returned to some semblance of normality in 1980. Three novels accumulated enough voted to be placed, and were accorded first, second, and third place. No odd new categories were added. No strange systems of reporting the results. Just three books ranked in the order that the judges voted them into.
