The Speculative Literature Foundation has announced the results of the second annual Fountain Award, which carries a cash prize of $1000.
The winning story is "The Annals of Eelin-Ok" by Jeffrey Ford, first published in The Faery Reel, an anthology edited by Ellen Datlow.
Ten other stories received honourable mentions.
The Fountain Award is given to speculative short stories of exceptional literary quality. A jury judges the Fountains, and the works are chosen from nominations by magazine and anthology editors for the year in question.
The judges for the award this year (for stories published in 2004) were Matthew Cheney, Gavin Grant, Patricia McKillip, Vandana Singh, and Alison Smith.
