Audie Awards

Audie Awards Logo

The music industry has its Grammy, the movie industry the Oscar, and the theatre community its Tony. The audio publishing industry honors excellence with the Audie, the only completely juried award that exclusively covers audiobooks and spoken word entertainment.

In 2003, which was the 8th Annual presentation of the Audies, a Science Fiction category was added. Throughout the years, genre titles were awarded in other categories. Below is a list of science fiction, fantasy, and horror books that have won Audies, and the categories in which they won.
