_________________
Love prevails.
~ Tracie Mckinney-Hammon

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

2019 Otherwise Award Winner

https://otherwiseaward.org/2020/04/akwaeke-emezi-wins-2019
Quote:
Akwaeke Emezi has won the 2019 Otherwise Award for Freshwater (Grove Press, 2018).

The Otherwise Award (formerly known as the Tiptree Award) celebrates science fiction, fantasy, and other forms of speculative narrative that expand and explore our understanding of gender. The jury that selects the Award's winner and the Honor List is encouraged to take an expansive view of "science fiction and fantasy" and to seek out works that have a broad, intersectional, trans-inclusive understanding of gender in the context of race, class, nationality, disability, and more.

Honor List

"Dreamborn" by Kylie Ariel Bemis
The Book of Flora by Meg Elison
Pet by Akwaeke Emezi
Meet Me in the Future by Kameron Hurley
"Of Warps and Wefts" by Innocent Chizaram Ilo
The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal
The Elemental Logic series by Laurie J. Marks
The Lonesome Bodybuilder by Yukiko Motoya
The Deep by Rivers Solomon

Since those two posts above both included awards that have changed their name this year, some context!

Last year at the Hugo Awards ceremony at Worldcon, Jeannette Ng, winner of the 2019 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, used her acceptance speech to call out John W. Campbell as a fascist who had used his position as one of the most prestigious editors in science fiction to gatekeep which types of work and which kinds of author were getting published based on his own personal politics. This led to a debate about whether it was appropriate to name awards after him, and reignited the debate about whether it was ever a good idea to name awards after individuals (previous such debates had led to the World Fantasy Award changing its statue from a bust of the notoriously racist H P Lovecraft to a tree design). The people who owned the Campbell Award (which is not a Hugo Award but a seperately run one sponsored by Dell Magazines) quickly announced that they would be renaming it the Astounding Award, after the magazine Campbell edited.

The same debate also brought light to a similar argument around the Tiptree Award, named for James Tiptree Jr, aka Alice B Sheldon. Sheldon is highly regarded as an author, but there is some controversy surrounding her death and the death of her disabled husband, whom she killed in what was either a suicide pact or a murder-suicide. The Tiptree Award was subsequently renamed the Otherwise Award to remove the negative association.

I can't believe the praise the Avengers are getting from the critical community.

I absolutely despised both Infinity War and Endgame.

Still, I enjoy looking at these short-lists for new authors to follow.
