We congratulate the winners of the 2014 Prix Aurora Awards:
Best English Novel:
A Turn of Light by Julie E. Czerneda
“A young woman trapped between two worlds must risk everything to save both in Czerneda's charming character-driven fantasy of rich magic, multilayered characters, and dangerous choices.”
Best English YA Novel:
The Rising by Kelley Armstrong
“Hunted by two powerful Cabals and quickly running out of places to hide, Maya and her friends - all of whom have supernatural powers - search for answers as to why they're so valuable and why their powers are becoming so hard to control.”
And non-literary, but a personal favourite:
Best Fan Music: Chris Hadfield for his performance of Space Oddity . I love it!
