Sunburst Awards Ceremony

As per my recent blog post, my collection Chimerascope has been selected by the 2011 Sunburst Award jury for the short list in the adult fiction category. The award ceremonies will be held September 14 in Toronto as part of the regular Authors at Harbourfront reading series, and will include each of the authors reading from the short-listed works.

The Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic is a juried award to recognize stellar writing in two categories: adult and young adult. The awards are presented annually to Canadian writers with a speculative fiction novel or book-length collection of speculative fiction published any time during the previous calendar year. Named after the first novel by Phyllis Gotlieb (1926–2009), one of the first published authors of contemporary Canadian science fiction, the awards consist of a cash award of Cdn$1,000 and a medallion which incorporates a specially designed "Sunburst" logo.

Hope to see you there!
