Cordwainer Award to Stanley G. Weinbaum

I'm at Readercon 19 in Burlington, Massachusetts, where, on Friday, July 18, 2008, the winner of this year's Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award, honoring a deceased SF writer who has slipped from public consciousness but deserved to have renewed attention brought to his work, was presented to Stanley G. Weinbaum, author of, among others, the seminal short story "A Martian Odyssey."

The current jury for the Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award is:
  • Martin Harry Greenberg
  • Barry N. Malzberg
  • Mike Resnick
  • Robert J. Sawyer

I first read "A Martian Odyssey" as a teenager, and many times after that. Tweel has been leaping through my head for a long time. I also like Weinbaum's novel The New Adam.
