Retro Hugos

From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hugo Awards may be given out retroactively, along with the regular Hugos, to works and people eligible 50, 75 or 100 years prior to a current World SF Convention, and for years in which the regular Hugos were not given out. (Whether or not to give them out is left to the eligible Worldcon.)

The purpose of the Retros is for today's fans to judge the work of the past, not for them to try to replicate what voters "back then" would have chosen. The Retros were the brainchild of Bruce Pelz.

Retro Hugos were awarded the first time in 1996 at L.A.Con III for works and people eligible in 1945 (but given as the 1946 Retro Hugos). The first actual Hugos were awarded at the 1953 Worldcon for works and people eligible in 1952, but the next set was not given out until the Worldcon two years later, so the Retro Hugos fill in the blank.
