Back when the Hugo Awards meant something

Leigh Brackett was the first woman nominated for one of them.

The 1956 Hugo ballots for Best Novel were:

  • Double Star by Robert A. Heinlein [Astounding Feb,Mar,Apr 1956]
  • Call Him Dead, by Eric Frank Russell
  • The End of Eternity, by Isaac Asimov
  • Not this August, by Cyril Kornbluth
  • The Long Tomorrow, by Leigh Brackett

For a little perspective, the Hugos were established in 1953.
