An embarrassment of riches

Well, this isn’t exactly true. We’re not embarrassed at all about the fact that Andrew Hood's Pardon Our Monsters just won the 2007 Danuta Gleed Prize for Best First Short Fiction Collection. Andrew can now hunker down to write his novel. (The $10,000 purse doesn’t hurt either). This news comes on the heels of the announcement that Asa Boxer won the 2007 CAA Poetry Prize for The Mechanical Bird and that Mary Dalton’s Red Ledger was a finalist for Newfoundland & Labrador’s 2007 Heritage and History Book Award. It’s been a stellar month!
