Endeavour Award

To my astonishment, I seem to have won the Endeavour Award!

Space Magic was selected over worthy competitors Anathem by Neal Stephenson; Ill Met in the Arena by Dave Duncan; Long Walks, Last Flights and Other Stories by Ken Scholes; and A World Too Near by Kay Kenyon by judges Joe Haldeman, John Helfers, and Sarah Zettel.

Thanks to the judges, everyone who read books for the award, members of the Lucky Lab Rats crit group, mkhobson for suggesting I try to get a collection published, deborahlive for publishing it, and kateyule for love and support.

The award comes with a $1000 check and an engraved glass trophy. I really did not expect to win it.
