SF Canada members Dave Duncan, Cory Doctorow and Eileen Kernaghan on Sunburst Award short list

Three SF Canada members have made the shortlist of the Sunburst Award, Canada's premiere juried award for science fiction and fantasy literature.

Dave Duncan's The Alchemist's Code (Ace) is a finalist in the adult category, while Cory Doctorow's Little Brother (Tor) and Eileen Kernaghan's Wild Talent: A Novel of the Supernatural (Thistledown) are on the young adult shortlist.

In addition, Ursula Pflug's collection After the Fires received an honorable mention in the adult category, as did Arthur Slade's Jolted: Newton Starker's Rules for Survival in the young adult category.

The awards, named after the first novel by Phyllis Gotlieb, consist of $1,000 cash and a medallion which incorporates a specially designed "Sunburst" logo. The winners will be announced in the fall.
