This year’s Lambda Literary Awards were announced last night. They are for queer writing in all of its forms. One of the categories is for science fiction, fantasy & horror. As Locus reports, the winner for 2015 is my dear friend Chaz Brenchley for his book, Bitter Waters. Congratulations also to Steve Berman of Lethe Press who published the book.
You can find the full list of winners here. There are two trans categories. The fiction category was won by Casey Plett’s A Safe Girl To Love from the very fabulous Topside Press. The non-fiction category was won by Thomas Page McBee’s Man Alive: A True Story of Violence, Forgiveness and Becoming a Man from City Lights/Sister Spit. It must be pretty spectacular as it beat out Janet Mock’s Redefining Realness.
