Note: Sub-Genre Award (Science Fiction). The John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Best Science Fiction Novel (not to be confused with "John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer") was created in 1973 by writers and critics Harry Harrison and Brian W. Aldiss to honor Campbell's name. It was the first major SF award established after the Hugos and Nebulas, and is distinguished from them by being a judged award. 1976, the jury felt that no truly outstanding novels had been published the previous year, and so the award was given retrospectively to a novel published in 1970. In 1994, no award was given due to a breakdown in the nomination process rather than due to feeling that no novel was worthy. A 2nd and 3rd place were awarded.
