John W. Campbell Award for the best science fiction novel (2009)

Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother and Ian MacLeod’s Song of Time shared the John W. Campbell Award for the best science fiction novel of the year. James Gunn, director of the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas, announced the co-winners, along with the recipient of this year's Theodore Sturgeon Award for the best short science fiction: James Alan Gardner’s "The Ray Gun: A Love Story."

The authors, who will accept their awards at KU July 10, will be featured at the Campbell Conference July 11-12, where they will open a discussion about what’s new in publishing and its effect on writing and reading.
