I just got an email from Julie Czerneda, the anthology editor, telling me that Polaris: A Celebration of Polar Sciencehas been nominated for some awards.
It is up for the Prix Aurora Award (the Canadian Hugo), which any Canadian my vote on. Click this link to see the ballot. The category is Best Work in English (Other).
It is also up for the Science in Society Book Award, from the Canadian Science Writer's Association. The category here is Young Adult.
High fives to all the other writers who appear in this anthology and a big "thank you" to Julie for doing such an excellent job. This is great news!
