The Most Award-Winning Science Fiction & Fantasy Books Of The 1970’s

April 28, 2017

“What are the most Award-Winning Science Fiction & Fantasy Books of the 1970’s?”

We have been going year-by-year through the 1970’s taking a look at the most award-winning books each year. As we reach the end of the decade we thought it would be interesting to take a look back at all of the years together to see which books did the best. We have gone over our arbitrary ranking system before, but essentially we gave a book 5 points for being nominated for an award and an additional 5 points if it won the award.

A larger look back at the decade also helps to highlight a few books that might not have ranked too high for any one year. Because awards are usually given out to books that came out in the previous year, sometimes a books wins were split between different years, depending on when it came out in that country or when the cut-off date was for certain awards, meaning it didn’t rank as high for our yearly top lists as it could have.

Altogether there was 186 unique books that were nominated for Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards during the 1970’s.

If you would like a more detailed breakdown of the years, books, and awards check out our lists for each year:

Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind’s first encounter with alien intelligence. It will kindle their wildest dreams… and fan their darkest fears.

Point Total: 20

The setting is in a parallel world where William Shakespeare was not the Bard but the Great Historian. In this world, all the events depicted within Shakespeare’s plays were accounts of historical fact, not fiction. As some of the plays depicted anachronistic technology, Anderson extrapolated that this world was more technologically advanced than in reality. However, the fairies of A Midsummer Night’s Dream are also part of this world. The novel takes place in the era of Cromwell and Charles I, but the characters deal with the English Civil War which is coeval with anIndustrial Revolution. The fairy element provides a plot tension with the more advanced technology.

Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth.

The only alternative to progress is death. The secret directorate that governs the city makes sure that its inhabitants know nothing of this. Raised in common in crèches, nurtured on synthetic food, prevented above all from venturing outside the closed circuit of the city, they are carefully sheltered from the dire necessities that have come to define human existence. And yet the city is in crisis. The people are growing restive, the population is dwindling, and the rulers know that, for all their efforts, slowly but surely the city is slipping ever farther behind the optimum.

Lew Nichols can predict the future. Not see the future, just make predictions based on research and statistics. Nichols is damn good at it, though, and his accuracy makes him a valuable addition to Paul Quinn’s political campaign for New York City Mayor and possibly the White House. But, when Nichols meets eccentric millionaire Martin Carvajal, predictions suddenly seem petty and flippant. You see, Carvajal can actually see the future—not trends, not options—a signal line of events stretching out ahead. It’s a gift Nichols can learn from this “mentor,” but at what price? Will knowing the future make the present meaningless?
