The news out of the literary awards world is a real mixed bag.
First, the unequivocally good news: six writers are among the fifty 2024 USA Fellows, each of whom receives an unrestricted cash award of $50,000 from the arts organization United States Artists, says Literary Hub.
Next, the somewhat bad news: judges administering the Crime Writers’ Association Diamond Dagger for lifetime contribution to crime writing "almost came to blows" before bestowing the honor on Lynda La Plante and James Lee Burke, according to the Guardian.
And now, the ugly: the 2023 Hugo Awards have seen a number of technical issues arise during the voting process, along with other messier questions about why certain works were excluded and how votes were tallied, reports Book Riot.
