Campbell, Sturgeon Awards Winners

George Zebrowski's Brute Orbits has won the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for the best science fiction novel of 1998, and Ted Chiang's ''Story of Your Life'' has won the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for the best short SF of the same year.

The winners were announced by awards chairman James Gunn and presented at a dinner at the University of Kansas on Friday, July 9. Zebrowski's novel was published by HarperPrism; Chiang's story was published in Starlight 2, an anthology edited by Patrick Nielsen Hayden and published by Tor Books.

Second place in the Campbell competition was Poul Anderson's Starfarers (Tor); third place was Distraction by Bruce Sterling (Bantam Spectra).

Second place in the Sturgeon competition was Michael Kandel's ''Wading River Dogs and More'' (Asimov's May 1998), and third place was Ian R. MacLeod's ''The Summer Isles'' (Asimov's Oct/Nov 1998).

As previously announced, four new members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame were inducted at the same dinner: Jules Verne and A. Merritt posthumously, and Robert Silverberg and Ray Bradbury.

The awards are sponsored by the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas.
