Established in 1971 - the Locus Award is presented each year to winners of the Locus magazine's reader's poll. Between 1971 and 1979 there was an award for "best novel" - since 1980 this has been split into "best sci fi novel" and "best fantasy novel" - up until the millennium there was also a category for "best horror novel" however this award is sadly no more.
The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
