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.

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.)

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.
