Now, this is a cool thing: an award for genre writing that considers novels, blog posts, short stories, screenplays, poetry, and anthologies. Run by Starburst Magazine, 'Brave New Words' boasts not only an impressive spread of different mediums, but the perfect sci-fi play-on-words title, too.
I'm so thrilled to be shortlisted - alongside some properly great writers! Here is the shortlist:
- Katie Khan for her novel, Hold Back the Stars (Penguin Random House)
- Adrian Tchaikovsky for his book Dogs of War (Head of Zeus)
- Margrét Helgadóttir for her work as editor of Pacific Monsters ( Fox Spirit Books) .
- Cassandra Khaw for the short story Degrees of Ellision from the 2084anthology. (Unsung Publishing)
- Claire North for their novel The Sudden Appearance of Hope (Little Brown)
- Jeannette Ng for Under the Pendulum Sun (Angry Robot Books)
