Hugo Award Winners for Best Novella

The Hugo Award for Best Novella was first awarded in 1968, and has been awarded every year since. The Hugo Awards bestowed in this category for the years before 1968 were all granted as "retroactive" awards, handed out many years later. The Hugo Awards define a novella as a work of fiction that is between 17,500 and 40,000 words long.

Clicking on the year will take you to a page listing all of the nominees for the Hugo Award for that year. Three novellas have been awarded "Retro Hugos", and are listed here in red, with the year the award was actually given noted in parenthesis.
