The HNS seeks to support writers of new historical fiction by the Historical Novel Society Awards.
New Novel Award
Awarded to a previously unpublished and currently un-agented historical novel.
Short Story Award
The 2014 Award was won by Anne Aylor for The House of Wild Beasts
The 2014 Award was won by Virginia Cox for The Subtlest Soul.
The 2015 Award was won by Anna Belfrage for Revenge and Retribution.
We will no longer be running an award specifically for Indies in future for these reasons. We apologise to those caught between our systems, who had been long-listed for a 2017 award that we are no longer offering.
