Quill & Quire names Atwood, Coupland, Sawyer to "CanLit 30"

QUILL & QUIRE, the Canadian publishing trade journal, has just released (as the cover story in its March 2008 issue) its first-ever list of "The CanLit 30: The most influential, innovative, and just plain powerful people in Canadian publishing." Only three authors made the list, and all of them have genre associations: Margaret Atwood, Douglas Coupland, and Robert J. Sawyer. More details here.

John W. Campbell Award section added to 2007 - Publications in English wiki

I've added a section to the 2007 - Publications in English wiki, at the very end, listing Canadians eligible for nomination for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. One nominates for this award on the Hugo ballot, and the award is presented during the Hugo ceremony at the World Science Fiction Convention, which in 2008 will be held in Denver. The award is sponsored by Dell Magazines, publishers of Analog and Asimov's. I'm aware of four Canadians who are eligible: Stephen Kotowych, Tony Pi, Jerome Steuart, and Sarah Totton; if you know of others, please add them. There are links in the wiki to pages about each of these writers.
