2010 National Book Award Judges Include Samuel Delany

Here's some fun news for the day: Samuel Delany is one of the five judges for the National Book Award in the Fiction category for 2010.

The entire panel is interesting: in addition to Delany, it includes Andrei Codrescu, Sabina Murray, Joanna Scott, and Carolyn See.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall for the discussions amongst such a group!


  1. Whoa, Kelly Link's a judge too.

  2. Good catch, Josh -- I somehow completely missed that when I first glanced at the lists. (Chalk it up to my general blindness to YA and kidlit.)
