The Endeavour Award committee has announced the suspension of the 2021 award for books published in 2020. In a statement, they said,
Several reasons have led to the suspension. The Covid 19 situation has made it more difficult to run our preliminary judging. In addition to problems stemming from the pandemic, additional problems have contributed to the need to suspend the Award.
We expect to begin collecting books published during 2021 in early Fall, for the 2022 Award. We are suspending the Award, not killing it.
Finally, if circumstances change and we are able revive the Award for books published during 2020, we will do so.
The award, usually announced at OryCon, is given “for a distinguished science fiction or fantasy book written by a Pacific Northwest author or authors and published in the previous year” and comes with a $1,000 prize.
