  1. I’m especially delighted to see Ian Whates get this recognition; he’s been doing some fantastic work at NewCon Press. Unsung Stories Publishing has also been putting out some great work.

  2. Congratulations to Jen Williams, Aliette de Bodard, the “Uncanny” juggernaut, and the rest of the winners!

    Hopefully Williams’s current series gets published in the U.S. at some point. I know I can order it from the U.K. . . . but. I hope it finds a home on this side of the Atlantic, too.
