On Spec wins an Aurora!

OK, so yesterday, I just gave a totally unprepared speech to thank the Canadian SF&F community for voting On Spec this year’s Aurora Award for Best Related Work!

Many, many thanks to my absolutely fabulous team of editors, designers, social media folks and of course the amazing writers, poets and artists who have sent us their work over the years that On Spec has been in publication.  We are proud beyond words to give them a respected showcase for their creations. 

My thanks to the great folks on the Aurora committee for organizing everything over the years, and to the fabulous team at When Words Collide who made the online presentation of the Auroras a part of their great virtual convention. It has been a fabulous weekend.

And it goes without saying that we are grateful to the folks who voted for us. The other nominees in our category were equally deserving.

And a special thanks to author Cory Doctorow, a winner of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Society. Cory, who has had an amazing writing career, was gracious enough to mention not once, but TWICE, that his first fiction sale was to On Spec.

Just wait until you see the cover and contents in our next issue.  It’s with our designer even as I write this.

Live long and prosper,
