The Helicon Society is a collective of SF/F authors and other creators who subscribe to the Superversive approach to creating SF/F media. It is not an official organization, it collects no fees and membership is by invitation only. The society administers one award – THE HELICON AWARDS – announced annually on this website.
Named after the mountain that the mythological Nine Muses called home, the Helicon Awards recognizes the best in science fiction, fantasy and horror for each calendar year.
The 2019 Helicon Awards covers works from 2018, serving as the inaugural year, and were announced on July 4, 2019. Starting in 2020, the awards will be announced on April 2nd.
Nominations for a year’s awards open on January 1st and close on January 15th of that year. Nominated works must have been published for the first time between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of the previous year.
