About this award

According to Article 3.3.4 of the Constitution of the World Science Fiction Society, a short story is "A science fiction or fantasy story of less than seven thousand five hundred (7,500) words." Additional Hugo Awards are given for longer pieces of fiction: novelette, novella and novel. Author Harlan Ellison has won it more times than anyone else with 4 wins.

Awards given in one year are for works published during the previous calendar year.

The category definitions have changed over the years. In 1960–1964 and 1966 the award was for "Short Fiction".
