Some prize-related news

First, the winner of this year’s Caine Prize has been announced, and it is Tope Folarin for “Miracle”. As I said in my last Caine post, “America” was my favourite of this year’s shortlist, but I can certainly see why Folarin’s story won. You can read the story itself here (links to a pdf), and my post on it is here.

 

And the shortlist for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Translation Awards (of which I am a member of the jury) has been announced and can be found here. Obviously I have favourites; obviously I’m not going to declare them here just yet. But it’s a very good collection of books and short stories, and I’m glad to have had the chance to read them.
