The Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award is the short fiction counterpart of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best novel of the year. The award honors Theodore Sturgeon, one of the great short story writers of SF in the Golden Age of SF, from 1939 through the 1950s.
Scope
Short fiction published in English language publications
What
A permanent award, bearing the names of all winners, and since 2004 individual lucite trophies.
Where & When
At the annual Campbell Conference Awards Banquet, held in Lawrence, Kansas, in July.
Process
From 1987-1994 the award was selected by a committee of short fiction experts led by Orson Scott Card. Beginning in 1995, the award was juried, by jurors compiled in this index. In recent years preliminary nominations are gathered by Chris McKitterick, based on nominations from various sf reviewers and readers, and with the assistance of one of the Sturgeon children, usually Noël.
