Congratulations to Eugene's Nina Kiriki Hoffman for winning a Nebula Award â€” the awards given by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America â€” for her short story "Trophy Wives."
Another Eugenean, Kate Wilhelm, was one of three winners of the Solstice Award, which was created last year and is given to a writer "who has had a significant impact on the science fiction or fantasy landscape, and is particularly intended for those who have consistently made a major, positive difference within the speculative fiction field."
The rest of the winners are listed here at Locus. Oregon did pretty darn well, what with Ursula K. Le Guin also winning for her young adult novel Powers. I don't think I missed any other Oregonians, but please correct me if I did!
