Here’s the official announcement.
Nothing more needs to be said. One of the writers who led me to become a lifelong sf reader is getting a well-deserved accolade. So well-deserved I predicted it three years ago. (I’m also glad to see the recently-erupting political fault lines in the sf community didn’t ding him as I feared they might).
I’ll update my most recent prediction and predict C.J. Cherryh will receive the Grand Master award in 2016.
