The winners of the 2018 Hugo Awards are here. It might have been the first year for Worldcon’s new rules, designed to curb voting slates that haunted previous years, but it didn’t change the actual results. That’s because, for the third year in a row, women dominated the awards — including another Best Novel win for N.K. Jemisin, making her the first author in Hugo’s history to win the award three times in a row.

Science fiction and fantasy fans were shocked yesterday when it was announced that Ursula K. Le Guin, the iconic author of science fiction and fantasy works such as The Left Hand of Darkness, had passed away at 88 years old. Authors, artists and filmmakers alike flocked to Twitter to share memories of the acclaimed writer who helped shape modern speculative fiction. We've collected some of their words here, and invite you to share yours as well.
