Several Awards Announced at ICFA

Emerald City reports the following awards were announced Saturday night at a gala banquet at the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts:

The Lord Ruthven Award for best vampire novel went to The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, with Octavia Butler's Fledgling as the runner-up.

The Dell Magazines Award for best short fiction by a student went to Meghan Sinoff, apparently for a body of work rather than a single story.

And the very complicated Crawford Award (which goes to a writer who has published a debut book in the past eighteen months, but is emphatically not given to the specific book that made that writer eligible) went to Joe Hill, due to his collection 20th Century Ghosts.

Congratulations to all, and I hope this means I'll enjoy The Historian and 20th Century Ghosts when I get to them.
