Sturgeon-trophy-s3We’re delighted to congratulate Cory Doctorow on winning the 2015 Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for his short story “The Man Who Sold the Moon,” which originally appeared in Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future. The Sturgeon Award, established in 1987, celebrates the best short science fiction story of the year. It is given by the Gunn Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas.

We would also like to congratulate Geoffrey Landis, whose Hieroglyph story “A Hotel in Antarctica” was also a finalist for this year’s Sturgeon. You can learn more about the award and watch Cory’s acceptance video over at Boing Boing.

“The Man Who Sold the Moon” is also a finalist for the 2015 Locus Awards, in the Novella category, along with Elizabeth Bear’s Hieroglyph story “Covenant,” a Short Story finalist.
