NESFA continues to maintain a list of Good Stuff to read. Any NESFA member who reads something that they would like to recommend to others to be considered for a Hugo nomination can add it to the list. We will publish it from time to time in Instant Message and on the nets. (Feel free to reproduce it provided you reproduce it intact!) It's neither definitive nor complete, but it contains the stories, novels and non-fiction works that a bunch of well-read fans feel may be worthy of a Hugo nomination.
Even when the period for Hugo nominations is over, we will keep the lists for the current year, as well as previous years, available on the nets. It provides a reference source for finding a good book, as well as for Hugo recommendations.
Lists for a given year tend to get updated until the Hugo nominees for that year are released, so that 2007 lists, for example, will be updated through early 2008.
The Reading lists for the following years are available:
- 2013 <– the year which will be awarded at London in 2014 in August 2014
