The Compton Crook Award is presented by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society to the best debut science fiction, fantasy or horror novel of the year. It is perhaps no surprise this year the winner is a book that already has a Nebula win to its name: The Windup Girl by Paulo Bacigalupi (Night Shade).

The award plaque and a check for $1,000 will be presented at Balticon tomorrow night. Paolo had better hurry as he’s giving a reading at Borderlands Books in San Francisco tonight. If you are in the Bay Area do pop along: there may be celebrations.
