We have some great news for you, as if our collection of judges weren’t impressive enough, the talented author of The House of Shattered Wings has agreed to join our lineup. Aliette de Bodard hails from the US but grew up in France, being a fan of both fantasy and scifi. She has won two Nebula Awards, a Locus Award and a British Science Fiction Award, in addition to being a finalist for the Hugo and Sturgeon Award, and is on the Tiptree Award Honour List.
This takes our judging lineup to nine very talented authors and industry experts that are waiting to see what creative gems you’re going to unearth in 2017. Our submission period opens in February 2017 so start digging through that treasure trove of old stories and breathe some life back into them, or even dreamup something completely new – as long as it’s fantasy then we’d love to read it!
