(NASDAQ: AMZN)Tonight, New York Times bestselling author N. K. Jemisins short story Emergency Skin was named the winner of the 2020 Hugo Award for Best Short Novelette. Published last fall as part of the Forward collection from Amazon Original Stories, Emergency Skin is Jemisins first publication with the Amazon Publishing imprint.

I’m astonished and delighted that people like my little stranger-in-a-strange-land parable, said Jemisin. Many thanks to the Hugo voters, and to Amazon for making the story available at low cost or free so that readers everywhere can enjoy it.

The Hugo Awards recognize the very best in the science fiction genre, and we are so pleased to celebrate this recognition of N.K. Jemisins boundary-pushing short story, Emergency Skin, said Mikyla Bruder, Publisher of Amazon Publishing. Time and again, N. K. Jemisin proves why she is one of todays most important voices in the genre, and we are thrilled that the Hugo Awards agree that this story is no different.

In Jemisins Emergency Skin, narrated by Star Trek: Discoverys Jason Isaacs, an explorer returns to gather information from a climate-ravaged Earth that his ancestors, and others among the planets finest, fled centuries ago. But the mission comes with a warning: a graveyard world awaits him, along with those who were left behind.

This is the fourth Hugo Award win for Jemisin, whose novels The Fifth Season (2016), The Obelisk Gate (2017), and The Stone Sky (2018), all published within The Broken Earth trilogy by Orbit, won for Best Novel. Jemisin is the first Black writer to win in the Best Novel category, and the first author ever to win for all three books in a trilogy.
