Jemisin Wins Sputnik Award
N.K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season (Orbit) has won the 2015/2016 Sputnik Award.
The Sputniks were formed in May 2016 by Jo Lindsay Walton as a response to nomination problems within the Hugo Awards. Nominations for the Sputnik Awards were open to everyone, with finalists selected via a tournament process called the Dungeons of Democracy. Jemisin wins a one-year subscription to Interzone.
