science fiction awards database

The Science Fiction Awards Database is a rebranding, redesign, and expansion of the Locus Index to Science Fiction Awards, established in 2000 but now deprecated, except for the homepage and the essays linked in the left pane.

This site went online in August 2012 with awards listings and individual pages for every nominee (under the Names tab, above) -- and for those with more than a few nominations, separate pages sorted chronologically and alphabetically by title.

This site's goal, despite the title, is to profile the significant works of SF/F/H history based not just on Awards, but on additional sources, as indicated in the tabs above -- Citations, and Anthologies/Collections. While the awards content was transferred from the old site in 2012, these additional data, and analyses, are being developed and posted in 2014, with a plan for the entire site to be complete by the end of 2015.

2015 Ranked Titles

This is a refinement of the earlier “frequent titles” page, which listed titles in descending order of total number of award nominations and/or wins from a single awards year. The new page weights the wins and nominations by prominence of award, in roughly the same way the awards are listed on the Awards Directory page. (Thus one win of a major award might be worth more than three nominations for minor awards.)
