Provine Wins 2015 Baen Fantasy Adventure Award

Baen Books bwJeff Provine has won the 2015 Baen Fantasy Adventure Award Grand Prize with his short story “Kiss from a Queen.”

First Runner-up was Katherine Monasterio for her short story “Trappists,” and Second Runner-up was Joseph L. Kellogg for “Shell Game.”

Baen also recognized two stories for Honorable Mention: “Burning Savanna” by Alexander Monteagudo and “Adroit” by Dave Williams.

Provine was presented with his award August 1 by Baen editor, Jim Minz at GenCon.

“We had a lovely little ceremony at the start of the Baen Traveling Roadshow,” said Minz. “Not only was Jeff there to receive his trophy and share a few words, Katherine was there to receive her award as well. Afterward we went out for dinner with a couple of authors. It was a terrific evening all around. I’m really looking forward to next year’s contest.”

The annual contest was held in conjunction with the GenCon Writers Symposium. Finalists were judged anonymously by a panel of Baen editors and writers helmed by science fiction and fantasy author Larry Correia. The Grand Prize comes with professional publication by Baen Books on the website.
