The winner and honor list for this year’s Tiptree Award have been announced. Details are on their website. It is great to see a book by an Australian writer, published by a UK small press, come out on top. Rupetta was a finalist for the Crawford as well. Definitely worth a look.
The Tiptree honor list is always full of good recommendations. I’m delighted to see Ancillary Justice on this list. The book has now won Best Debut in the Kitschies and an honor list placing in the Tiptree. I am waiting patiently to see if the various male reviewers who went on and on about what a badly written book it is might consider why they felt that way about it. (Not that it is perfect, by any means, but I found some of the reviews mind-boggling.)
Also on the list is Hild by Nicola Griffith which I love to pieces and will be getting a UK edition later in the year.
Eleanor Arnason’s Big Mama Stories is from Aqueduct Press and therefore available in the bookstore.
There’s lots more there that I want to read, but the final thing I want to mention is not readable, it is music. Here’s the Archandroid.
Even if it makes others uncomfortable
I will love who I am
Yeah, the booty don’t lie.
