I just got word from the Carl Brandon Society that Anil Menon’s “The Poincaré Sutra” has been nominated for the 2010 Carl Brandon Society Parallax Award and the 2010 Carl Brandon Society Kindred Award.* “The Poincaré Sutra” was published in Sybil’s Garage No. 7.
The Carl Brandon Soicety is an organization to help build further awareness of race and ethnicity in speculative literature and related fields. The Parallax Award is given for an outstanding speculative fiction work by a self-identified writer of color. The Kindred Award is given for an outstanding speculative fiction work dealing with race, ethnicity, and culture.
Congratulations to Anil Menon for his nominations!
* [8/10/2011 — Correction: Anil’s story has been longlisted for both awards. Anyone may nominate a story by going here. The shortlist will be announced in February 2012. We still wish to congratulate him for the nomination! ]
