The Lambda Literary Awards' science fiction category sometimes comes in for derision (for example, for passing over Octavia Butler's awesome Fledgling in favor of a markedly inferior work a couple years ago.) But this year's Lambda winners, announced last night, do include some great SF writers in non-SF categories. Most notably, Ammonite and Slow River author Nicola Griffith won the memoir category for her gorgeously packaged And Now We Are Going To Have A Party. (Enlarge the image to see the cool box-set design.) And First Person Queer, co-edited by Lawrence Schimel, won the anthology category. The actual science fiction winner this year was a horror book, The Dust Of Wonderland by Lee Thomas. [SF Awards Watch]
