I’m shocked and surprised to learn in the last couple of days that I’ve only gone and won the 2014 Independent Literary Industry Award for Best Editor. I was up against the uber-talented Angela Houle and Cynthia Shepp, so I’m doubly honoured by the award. More details of the award here, and while you’re there, check out the good work the people at Underground Book Reviews are doing to promote high-quality independently published fiction.
About John Kenny
I have had fiction published in Fear the Reaper, Emerald Eye: The Best of Irish Imaginative Fiction, Transtories, The World SF Blog, Revival Literary Journal, First Contact, FTL, Woman’s Way, Jupiter Magazine and several other venues. Currently looking for a publisher for my novel Down and Out.
I was co-editor of Albedo One from 1993 to 2013 and co-administrator of its International Aeon Award for Short Fiction from 2005 to 2013. Previous to that I edited several issues of FTL (1990 – 1992). I’ve also edited Writing4all: The Best of 2009 and Box of Delights, an original horror anthology from Aeon Press Books.
Congratulations, John! Delighted for you, and well deserved.
