WSFA Votes Award to Carrie Vaughn

The Washington Science Fiction Association has given the 2011 WSFA Small Press Award for Short Fiction to “Amaryllis” by Carrie Vaughn, published in Lightspeed Magazine (June 2010), edited by John Joseph Adams.

The announcement was made this past weekend at Capclave, where Vaughn was a guest of honor. Michael J. Walsh explains, “While some may raise an eyebrow over one of the GoHs winning the award, I will note that winner was selected by vote of WSFA members who participate in a blind judging process — reading the texts with identity of the author, publisher and editor removed.”
