1941 Retro-Hugo Novelette Category Changes

MidAmericon II’s Hugo Award Administrators announced a change to the 1941 Retrospective Hugo Awards finalists on June 19. “Darker Than You Think” by Jack Williamson was mistakenly categorized as a novelette and initially announced as a finalist in that category, but has been removed from the ballot. The story is a novella but did not receive sufficient nominations to qualify as a finalist in that category. “Vault of the Beast” by A.E. Van Vogt (Astounding Science-Fiction, August 1940) should have been listed as the 5th finalist and has been added to the 1941 Retrospective Hugo Awards ballot.

MidAmeriCon II encourages anyone who has already registered votes for the Retro Hugo contest online to update their ballot as they feel appropriate. Members voting by mailed in paper ballot may write in “Vault of the Beast” and rank it as they see fit. The administrators will count their ballot appropriately.
