Gollancz & SF Gateway Hugo eBook Promotion: the '80s & '90s

Alas, the 1980s were a rather dry period for Gollancz Hugo Award winners, with only one for Arthur C. Clarke in 1980. Luckily, the world was put to rights in the following decade, with Gollancz claiming nearly half of the awards for Best Novel in the 1990s. All eBook editions of our winners are currently […]
