Awarded September 3, 1968 by Baycon.
Baycon's categories were the same as Nycon 3's with the addition of the Best Novella category and continue a long period of relative stable Hugo categories.
This appears to be one of the first (if not the first) Worldcon to use a preferential ballot in Hugo voting. Baycon seems to have had a very schizophrenic attitude towards releasing the order of finish in the various categories. The always listed the second place finisher, but only sometimes did they list third place, and they did not rank anything that finished lower than third place.
