Award Winner

by wjw on May 18, 2016

51hQF8-CgfL-2Congratulations to Taos Toolbox veteran Fran Wilde, whose Updraft won the Andre Norton Award for young adult fiction, and also the Compton Crook award for best science fiction, horror, or fantasy novel (no age mentioned).

Updraft was workshopped at Toolbox, and despite being perhaps the most altitude-impaired student ever at Toolbox, Fran seems to have paid some attention.

Congratulations also to Toolbox grad Lawrence Schoen, who was nominated for the Nebula for Barsk, but ended up coming home with the Kevin O’Donnell, Jr. Award for Service to SFWA.

Applause, please, applause.

I got to meet them both at the Baltimore Book Festival this past September and in addition to being crackerjack authors, both a lovely people.

The Compton Crook Award is for best debut novel, which I feel was richly deserved. I’m hoping to get to meet Fran at Balticon this weekend.
