Sharman Apt Russell’s Knocking on Heaven’s Door and JJ Amaworo Wilson’s Damnificados won New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards in, respectively, the Science Fiction and the Fiction categories. Two other Silver City authors were also finalists – Ron Hamm, for Ross Calvin, Interpreter of the American Southwest, and Catalina Claussen, for Diamonds at Dusk – so it was a great year for our literary community.
