The annual Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award went to A. Merritt this year. The link takes you to the page where I describe what the award is. It is given every summer at Readercon.

To find out more about Merritt, you can start at wikipedia, and don’t miss the external links at the end of the page:

Readers, your thoughts are most welcome.
