The Plunkett Award

Following in the tradition of the James Tiptree Jr. Award, proposed at a WisCon Guest of Honor speech, and the Carl Brandon Society awards, which grew out of panels and speeches at WisCon, we now present to you a new award for the issues we hold dear here at WisCon:  The Plunkett.

Now, you may ask, what is the Plunkett? Who is this Plunkett?

Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett is better known to the SF/F community by his title: Lord Dunsany.

The Plunkett will be given, starting in 2008, for the work of speculative fiction that best explores issues of class, both economic and social.

If you want to get in on the ground floor of helping define the award, and making it into something real, contact Steven Schwartz (  or find him as he's wandering about the convention.
