Kitschies Judges and New Director

Kitschie Awards co-founder Jared Shurin has announced that he is stepping down as director of the award, with Glen Mehn taking over his duties.

Shurin and Anne C. Perry founded the award in 2009, though Perry stepped down from administration over two years ago after joining publisher Hodder & Stoughton.

Mehn will also be one of this year’s judges for the Red Tentacle (for best novel) and Golden Tentacle (for best debut novel) Awards, along with judges Kate Griffin, Adam Roberts,  Frances Hardinge, and Kim Curran.
