1939 Retro Hugo Suggestions

Over on the retrohugowomen community we've been unearthing many old gems. My personal favourites from the project are:

Short Stories
"With and Without Buttons" by Mary Butts (creepy, creepy ghost gloves)
"Between Two Worlds" by Mary Lutyens (shamelessly sentimental romance/ghost story)
"An Experiment of the Dead" by Helen Simpson (necromancer makes a foolish decision)

Novellette
"Master of the Serpent Women" by Mary Dale Buckner (classic shudder horror story)
"Werewoman" by C L Moore (curse has unexpected benefits for local wildlife... ok that's not actually the message of the story but that's what I took from it!)

Novella
"Ego" (republished as "Anthem") by Ayn Rand (classic sf dystopia)

Professional Artist
Margaret Brundage (the quintessential Weird Tales cover artist, IMO)

Comments

I recommend MARS by Ben Bova for Best Novel.
