copper-cylinder-version-2_0

Congratulations to award-winning author Silvia Moreno-Garcia on her new honorific—SIGNAL TO NOISE is the recipient of the Copper Cylinder Award (as seen here at left)!

The Copper Cylinder Award is presented every year by the Sunburst Award Society. From the Society’s page:

The Copper Cylinder Award is an annual award for Canadian literature of the fantastic, selected by members of the Sunburst Award Society for books published during the previous year. It derives its name from what is considered the first Canadian scientific romance, A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder, by James De Mille (1833-1880). All winners of the Copper Cylinder receive a unique, handcrafted copper cylinder trophy.

Way to go, Silvia! Time to commission that trophy case. . .
