2020 Skylark and Gaughan Awards

Betsy Wollheim is the recipient of the 2020 Edward E. Smith Memorial Award for Imaginative Fiction (AKA the Skylark Award). The award was presented by the New England Science Fiction Association (NESFA) at Boskone 57, held at the Westin Boston Waterfront, February 14-16, 2020.

The Skylark is given to “some person, who, in the opinion of the membership, has contributed significantly to science fiction, both through work in the field and by exemplifying the personal qualities which made the late ‘Doc’ Smith well-loved by those who knew him.”

The Jack Gaughan Award for Best Emerging Artist, also presented by NESFA, went to Iris Compiet. Judges were Stephen Hickman, Maryanne Plumridge, and Patrick Wilshire.
