And Quantum Night was uncertain if it would appear.

Brendan (mistershine) | 743 comments In a shocking upset, Robert Sawyer won both awards. This differentiates this year's Aurora Prize, since normally Robert Sawyer only wins one award.

:) Eat your heart out, Atwood. I suppose they'll eventually name the award after him.
