Thomas D Clareson Award

Tagged: Award

Instituted in 1995 and named in honour of Thomas D Clareson, the Thomas D Clareson Award for Distinguished Service is presented by the Science Fiction Research Association for outstanding service activities, specified as the promotion of SF teaching and study, editing, reviewing, editorial writing, publishing, organizing meetings, mentoring, and leadership in SF/fantasy organizations. Though early awards were presented to people already prominent in other areas of science fiction, recipients since 2000 have tended to be recognized for behind-the-scenes work, often as editors or administrators. Judging is by a committee of the SFRA, reconstituted each year. Recipients receive a commemorative plaque. [PKi]
