The finalists for this year’s Theodore Sturgeon Award were announced yesterday. Given that this is an award for short fiction, I was very much hoping that Clarkesworld would have a nominee or two. Well we don’t, but for a very good reason. The jurors very much liked Kij Johnson’s “Spar”, but as Kij is one of the jury she asked for the story to be removed from this list. She had to do it last year for “26 Monkeys” as well. So it is a bit disappointing, but it shows that, for a variety of reasons, Kij is absolutely the right sort of person to be judging that award.
