Often we don’t hear about someone until after they’ve won an award. This is certainly the case with David Anthony Durham, a young writer who just won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. The Hugo award recognizes speculative fiction (aka science fiction), but Durham has written four novels only one of which, Acacia, qualifies at sci-fi. Durham’s website is here, and you can read excerpts from all his novels there.
Hat tip to Rich for the heads up.
