Carl Brandon Society Awards 2011

I didn’t win any! But The House of Aunts and 起狮,行礼 (Rising Lion — The Lion Bows) is on their 2011 Honors List. That is nice! I have never had a story honor-listed before. Presumably it is like waiting for buses and that is why two have come along at once. (It did require a conscious effort to spell “honour” that way, in case you were wondering.)

There are two Carl Brandon Society Awards, one for speculative fiction by non-white people, and one for speculative fiction dealing with issues of race and ethnicity. This year’s winners are Tenea D. Johnson for her novel Smoketown, and Andrea Hairston for her novel Redwood and Wildfire.

You can nominate works published in 2013 for the Awards now! And you can find out more about the Carl Brandon Society at their website.
