Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

The Novella Award: the WINNAH!

cropped-novella-web-page-banner1Well, what a contest. We knew the result on Wednesday, because for reasons unknown (and, frankly, highly prejudicial to our locked-in reviewing schedule) the announcement of the winner of the 2015 Novella Award prize was brought back from 7 Oct to 30 Sept. Pah. Anyway, it was much easier on the contestants’ nerves, so it was probably a good thing all round.

Nine Allan’s Harlequin won, which pleased our Simon VERY much, since he got to review it. Many congratulations to her, and commiserations to the other shortlistees. Thanks also for the chance to read and review their work: it was FUN!
