The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester.

Did it get overlooked when RAH won in 56 or would he have been nominated in 57.


If he was up for award in 57, they should give it a retro hugo.

Yeah i saw that in wiki which shocked me.

I wonder how it was seen in its day by other authors,award people.

To not even nominate a book like this is crazy. Not only cause of the quality but many ideas that were totaly new in the mid 50's surely.

I can't believe that his short story, The Disappearing Act, wasn't nominated. It's one of the best damn stories I've ever read.

I'm reading my way through a bunch of the Hugo authors/books now, to fill in some gaps in my sci-fi reading.

I see several fans that read all Hugo/Nebula winners simply cause they win an award.

I could never do that. Way too big of chance of many of them being not good enough.

The fact that PKD best books werent even nominated to those awards show those award liked some authors and didnt like many others.

Also several of my other favs like Vance,Bester didnt get nominated for many of their classic works show that those two awards and me dont have the same taste.

If i read a Hugo and/or Nebula winner its cause of the author and not thanks the awards name .


D_Davis : I dont mean you in this post, but it reminded me having seen several in these forums that read the winners of those awards like its a gauranteed good read.

On the otherhand..... I started reading Hugo winners because I had run out of other things to read. I highly recommend it. Some of the books I have read, I would never had read otherwise, and turned out to be among the best I have ever read.

Conn, you have to remember that the Nebula only came into being in the mid-60s and many of Vance's and Bester's classic works were published before this, while the Hugo was first awarded in 1953, and the first ever winner of 'Best Novel'? Alfred Bester's The Demolished Man.

As for Vance, he received a total of four Hugo and four Nebula nominations, winning one of the first and two of the latter.

I agree that looking at the award winners isn't a sure-fire way of getting all the very best (the absence of Bester's The Stars My Destination, for example, is a mystery) but personally I found the Hugo winners in particular a great guide to some terrific books and authors in my early days as an SF reader.

Same here, Ian - and the operative word is "guide". I think that you stand a better chance of finding a good story from award winners than you do from random selection, especially if you're not acquainted with the author.

I just dont see the point of reading books for award wins If you are interesting author i will find my way to you, not because you won hugo or Nebula.

These two awards always prefer certain sf books. Its clear some authors get 30-40 noms while Jack Vance gets 4-8 despite writing classic works for 50+ years?

They should have made Retro award more important.
