Last week at the Norwescon, the 2010 Philip K. Dick award for distinguished original science fiction paperback was awarded to Mark Hodder for his book The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack (Pyr Books). Part of the Burton & Swinburne series, this book presents the infamous legend of Spring Heeled Jack as a science fiction mystery to be tackled by the books two protagonists. Did we mention there are werewolves, too?
Back in October, Tor.com ran an excerpt of this Victorian SF tale, and we couldn’t be happier that it’s just won this fantastic award. Congrats Mark!
