The North Carolina Speculative Fiction Foundation is proud to announce The Manly Wade Wellman Award, which sets out to recognize outstanding achievement in science fiction and fantasy novels written by North Carolina authors. The 2014 award, voted on by the combined membership of North Carolina science fiction and fantasy conventions (illogiCon, ConCarolinas, ConTemporal, and ConGregate), will cover novels published in 2013. Nominations will open at illogiCon in January ahead of a final voting round, with the award being presented at ConGregate in July.
The award is named for long-time North Carolina author Manly Wade Wellman with the permission of his estate.
