Members of the Sunburst Award Society have selected the 2013 winners of the Copper Cylinder Awards.
The Chaos by Nalo Hopkinson
Young Adult Award
Starling by Lesley Livingston.
This is a popularly voted award. The Society also gives the juried Sunburst Awards for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. Both awards celebrate Canadian fantastic literature published during the previous calendar year.
The award’s name is a homage to the first Canadian scientific romance, “A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder,” by James De Mille (1833-1880). The winners receive — you guessed it — a handcrafted copper cylinder trophy.
