2017 Sunburst Awards for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic

In July, the Sunburst Award Society announced the shortlists for its three categories of Sunburst Awards for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic, also known as the Copper Cylinder award.

These awards, presented annually in the categories of Adult and Young Adult speculative fiction, plus a category of Short Story, aim to recognize the speculative fiction of Canadian writers (citizens or landed immigrants), with a cash award and a Sunburst medallion. Winners were just announced this week.
