Rick Raphael (1919-1994) is the winner of the 2020 Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award, intended to bring attention to lesser-known SF and fantasy authors. The jury particularly cites Raphael’s 1966 fixup novel Code Three (composed of three shorter works, including two Hugo Award finalists) and 1960 humor novella “Make Mine Homogenized”.
This year’s judges were Barry Malzberg and Robert J. Sawyer.
