The Carl Brandon Society Awards

The first time I appeared on the Carl Brandon Society website, it proved to be the catalyst that led to the publication of Redemption in Indigo. Now Redemption in Indigo has won the 2010 Carl Brandon Parallax Award!

The winners of the 2010 Carl Brandon Society awards are Karen Lord, who received the Carl Brandon Parallax Award for her novel Redemption in Indigo, and Nnedi Okorafor, who received the Carl Brandon Kindred Award for her novel Who Fears Death.


  • N.K. Jemisin for The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
  • Anil Menon for The Beast with Nine Billion Feet
  • Charles Yu for “Standard Loneliness Package”

Heartfelt thanks to the Carl Brandon Society and congratulations to Nnedi Okorafor!
