This is a popularly voted award. 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 a handcrafted copper cylinder trophy designed by Peter Halasz & Rebecca Simkin.
The Sunburst 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.
