2013 James Tiptree Jr. Winner And Honoree List
The James Tiptree Jr. Award was created in 1991 at WisCon, an annual Science Fiction and Fantasy award that expands or explores our understanding of gender. "The aim of the award is not to look for work that falls into some narrow definition of political correctness, but rather to seek out work that is thought-provoking, imaginative, and perhaps even infuriating. The Tiptree Award is intended to reward those women and men who are bold enough to contemplate shifts and changes in gender roles, a fundamental aspect of any society." Past recipients include Caitlin R. Kiernan, Andrea Hairston, Catherynne M. Valente, Joe Haldeman, John Kessel, Nicola Griffith and more. Here's this year's winner and other titles honored by this year's jury.
