'Carson of Venus' Up for Retro Hugo Award


Well better late than never-in this case 75 years later! The Hugo Awards, which celebrates the best in science fiction and fantasy literature and film, has added a "Retro" awards category and among the nominees for best novel of 1938 is Edgar Rice Burroughs' third entry in the Venus series. He has some stiff competition from CS Lewis and T.H. White so we'll see on August 14 if he wins.
