Campbell Memorial Award was announced this weekend and Catherine Webb took the prize. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August was easily one of the best and most satisfying SF novels of 2014 and well done to Catherine Webb (aka Claire North) for winning! Recognized on several shortlists, and competing against many well-deserved finalists for this particular award, I’m happy to see this well-written novel finally get some award recognition!

Here’s my quickie-review, and here’s more info on the award and the list of finalists.
