Hugo Award for Best Non-Fiction Book


Hugo Award for Best Non-Fiction Book

The Hugo Awards are given annually by members of the World Science Fiction Convention for the best science fiction or fantasy works. The awards are named after Hugo Gernsback, the founder of the pioneering science fiction magazine "Amazing Stories", and given in various categories.
