CZP announce Authors Douglas Smith and Tim Lebbon on Award Short Lists

For their work with ChiZine Publications, authors Douglas Smith and Tim Lebbon have been nominated for two major genre awards; Smith for the 10th Annual Sunburst Award in the Adult Category for his star-reviewed short story collection Chimerascope; and Lebbon for the 2011 British Fantasy Society Award for his acclaimed novella The Thief of Broken Toys.

β€œIt’s been a really great year for our authors in terms of nominations, and they more than deserve it,” says CZP Co-Publisher Brett Alexander Savory. β€œAnd it’s always great to see the news spread out worldwide. The global genre community has been so good to us, and without their support for the company and the authors, we’d be back at square one.”

The Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic is an annual award celebrating the excellence of writing in Canadian fantastic literature. The award takes its name from the debut novel of the late Phyllis Gotlieb, one of the first published authors of contemporary Canadian speculative fiction.

A jury first selects a short list of five works in two categories: Adult and Young Adult. A winner is then chosen from each category. Winners receive a cash prize of $1,000 and a hand-crafted medallion which incorporates the “Sunburst” logo, designed by Marcel GagnΓ©. The awards will be presented on September 14, 2011 at the Harbourfront Reading Series following brief readings from each of the short-listed works.
