And here are the finalists. I’ve only heard two books from novel finalists and they are Parasite and The Wheel of Time. This years lists seems to be interesting and will effect the number of books in my to-read list. Also you can check the full lists and the details via 2014 Hugo Awards page.

In his blog Joe Abercrombie has shared his thoughts on the Hugo Awards and posted this in his facebook page.

There’s been an awful lot said of late around the internet about the Hugo awards. I simply didn’t feel I could remain silent on the subject any longer. -Joe Abercrombie
