2013 Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award

Wyman Guin (1915-1989) is the winner of the 2013 Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award, intended to bring attention to lesser-known SF and fantasy authors. This year’s judges were Barry Malzberg, Mike Resnick, Robert J. Sawyer, and Elizabeth Hand. The award was announced at Readercon 24, held July 11-14, 2013 in Burlington MA.

Guin was best known for his novella, “Beyond Bedlam”, which John Clute, who presented this year’s award, described as “a savage, funny, sad novella that needs to be remembered.” Guin also published one novel: The Standing Joy (1969).
