Bethany Jacobs wins Philip K. Dick Award!


HUGE congratulations to Bethany Jacobs—her debut novel, THESE BURNING STARS, is the winner of the 2024 Philip K. Dick Award!

The Philip K. Dick Award is presented annually with the support of the Philip K. Dick Trust for distinguished science fiction published in paperback original form in the United States. The award is sponsored by the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society and the award ceremony occurs at Norwescon.

We are so proud of Bethany for all the success that THESE BURNING STARS has gotten. In addition to the Philip K. Dick, it has received starred reviews from four major trade publications and landed on multiple “Best of 2023” lists.

A dangerous cat-and-mouse quest for revenge. An empire that spans star systems, built on the bones of a genocide. A carefully hidden secret that could collapse worlds, hunted by three women with secrets of their own. All collide in this twisty, explosive space opera debut, perfect for readers of Arkady Martine and Kameron Hurley.
