A Book of Endings shortlisted for the Crawford Award

From Locus Online:

Jedediah Berry has been named the winner of the 2010 William L. Crawford Award for first novel The Manual of Detection. The Award, presented annually at The International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, is for a new fantasy writer whose first book appeared the previous year. This year's conference will be March 17-21, 2010 in Orlando FL.

The award committee shortlisted Deborah Biancotti's collection A Book of Endings, Kari Sperring's novel Living with Ghosts, and Ali Shaw's novel The Girl With Glass Feet, and wanted to commend two other authors whose works were ineligible this year but were highly regarded: Robert V.S. Redick, whose The Red Wolf Conspiracy appeared in 2008 and whose The Ruling Sea appears in 2010, and Michal Ajvaz, whose The Other City originally appeared in Czech in 1993 but was first translated into English by Gerald Turner in 2009.

The Award is administered by Gary K. Wolfe with assistance from Kelly Link, Niall Harrison, Cheryl Morgan, Graham Sleight, Paul Witcover, John Clute, Jonathan Strahan, Liza Groen Trombi, Farah Mendlesohn, and Amelia Beamer.
