The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) have named Jane Yolen the 33rd recipient of the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award. SFWA president Cat Rambo said Yolen “epitomizes what a Grand Master should be. Her close to 300 hundred books, multiple awards, and overall high standard of prose and storytelling make her one of the treasures of fantasy and science fiction.”
The award, given for “lifetime achievement in science fiction and/or fantasy,” will be presented at the SFWA Nebula Conference held May 18-21, 2017 at the Pittsburgh Marriott Center in Pittsburgh PA.
