The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin was honored as best novel Friday at the Hugo Awards at the 75th Worldcon event in Helsinki, Finland.
Last year, the author won the same prize for the Broken Earth novel The Fifth Season.
Arrival, the big-screen adaptation of Ted Chiang’s short story, won the award for long-form dramatic presentation. “Leviathan Wakes,” the first-season finale of Syfy’s adaptation of The Expanse series of novels, won for short-form dramatic presentation.
The Hugo Awards celebrate achievement in science fiction and fantasy as recognized by members of the World Science Fiction Society.
