Congratulations to Creative Writing Professor Amal El-Mohtar, co-writer of This Is How You Lose the Time War, for winning the 2020 Hugo Award for Best Novella with her writing partner, Max Gladstone. Since its publication, This Is How You Lose the Time War has racked up several accolades, including a BSFA (British Science Fiction Association) Award for Best Shorter Fiction and the 2019 Nebula Award for Best Novella.
