Tiptree winner announcement!

Congratulations to Geoff Ryman, who has just won the James Tiptree, Jr. Literary Award for his book Air: or, Have Not Have. It’s an unusual book and a great story.

The award goes each year to a work of speculative fiction that expands and explores gender. I had a great time being on the Tiptree jury this year!

The short listed works are:

Willful Creatures by Aimee Bender (Doubleday 2005)
“Wooden Bride” by Margot Lanagan (in Black Juice, Eos 2005)
Little Faces” by Vonda N. McIntyre, on SciFiction, 02.23.05
A Brother’s Price by Wen Spencer (Roc 2005)
Misfortune by Wesley Stace (Little, Brown 2005)
Remains by Mark Tiedemann (Benbella Books 2005)

The long list and special mentions will be announced in a week or so.

  1. Woo hoo! I liked Air, very much. I haven’t read the others–and have only heard of Black Juice–and look forward to tracking down them all.

    (I also feel very hip and in, having just this minute found your blog–and there’s this announcement, which I haven’t seen anywhere else.)

  2. I have you on my watchlist on LibraryThing! I think there I’m just “lizzard”. And I can’t wait to add more of my books on there.
