Victorian Hugos

Thanks to a blog post from Merrian for drawing my attention to this wonderful Pre-Raphaelite shout-out on the popular website, io9.

They are doing honorary Hugos, an annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy award, for Victorians. And William Morris is acknowledged in a list of literature that would have been nominated for the hypothetical Hugo that year. It's a fun idea, and an interesting article. Go read!

William Morris has written "The Well at the World's End" which is considered as one of the first "fantasy" works.

News from Nowhere is a time travel fantasy.

I still need to read Morris, I'm ashamed to say!!
