I’m delighted and honored to announced that my YA novel Little Brother has won the 2009 Sunburst YA award for best Canadian sf novel for kids. The Sunburst is named for Phyllis Gottleib’s first novel, my friend and the “mother of Canadian science fiction,” who died this year, so it’s especially poignant and significant to have won this in 2009. I also won the Sunburst in the adult category for my first short story collection, A Place So Foreign and Eight More.

My sincere thanks to the jury for making this book their choice, and to the donors who make the Sunburst possible.
