Paul Melko’s The Walls of the Universe is one of four finalists in the Compton Crook/ Stephen Tall Memorial Award best first novel in the science fiction/fantasy field!
“This award was founded by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society, Inc. in 1982, and consists of a certificate and (in the belief that first novelists are often underpaid) a check for one thousand dollars. In addition, the winner is flown to our annual convention at our expense to receive the award.
Our convention is held this year on May 22 to 25 (Memorial Day weekend) at the Marriott Hunt valley Inn.
The winner will be decided on April 25th.”
