Klages wins Scott O'Dell Award

Ellen Klages is the winner of the 2007 Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction for The Green Glass Sea. The award is presented to a children's or young adult book published in English by a U.S. publisher and set in the Americas. Last year's winner was Louise Erdrich, so Ellen's in some pretty grand, and well deserved, company.

With quite the good timing, we're releasing Ellen's first short story collection, Portable Childhoods in April. It's great from the outside in, with a gorgeous John Berry cover designed around Ellen's own art (one of her many talents). The collection itself, including the Nebula award-winning "Basement Magic" and three original stories, has the depth of The Green Glass Sea, but also shows off Ellen's amazing versatility. It's everything you'd expect from sf's no longer best-kept secret.
