Colum Paget Wins the James White Award

Colum Paget, Hopefull Monster’s man in Britain, has won the James White Award

The James White Award is one of the major speculative fiction awards for “amateur” writers, so the competition is tough.  This year, Colum’s story “Invocation of the Lurker” beat out a record number of entries.  The field was so good, in fact, the judges decided to award a special commendation to a second finalist, Tori Truslow, something that has been done only once before in the award’s history.

In addition to a cash prize, Colum’s story, “Invocation of the Lurker” will be published in Interzone Magazine, Britain’s foremost speculative fiction publication.  Congratulations to Colum!
