I’m honoured and excited to say that 84K was awarded the Special Citation by the Philip K. Dick Award 2019, with the overall prize going to Audrey Schulman for Theory of Bastards. Anyone who follows this blog knows how much this means to me and how grateful I am; thank you again to the the judges for all their epic reading, and for giving this citation! There was much dancing and screaming round the room.
Thanks also to Fonda Lee (author of the awesome Jade City books) for accepting this on my behalf – I wish I could have been there, but with thousands of miles between me or Norwescon it wasn’t really possible – and I suspect Fonda did a better job of saying good words than I would have anyway.
Now… more squeeeeing! In a deeply literary way, of course.
