Parsec Awards 2018: sounds real good …

Gareth Jones, writer extraordinaire for SFcrowsnest for many a long year, has a story ‘The Long Afternoon of Sir Rupert Moncrief’ out which is in contention for the Parsec Awards’ Best Speculative Fiction Story: Small Cast (Short Form) category.

Mur Lafferty, Michael R. Mennenga & Tracy Hickman founded The Parsec Awards in 2006 to promote the art and science of Speculative Fiction Podcasting. Awards are given in several categories ranging from content to audio quality.

Podcast shows are nominated by fans, with finalists chosen by a yearly steering committee. Those finalists are then voted on by an independent panel of judges from outside of podcasting to select the uber-winners.

Well done, Gareth – hope you get to dust your tuxedo off for the awards night!
