As if we needed more evidence of the quality of writing that appears here and of the prescience of our editors, Cordelia Strube has just won the $10,000 Toronto Book Award for her novel On the Shores of Darkness, There is Light. You will all no doubt recall that in our March issue last year we ran an excerpt from the novel along with an interview with the author by our eminent contributing editor Ann Ireland.
Now we would like to heartily congratulate Cordelia for her amazing achievement.
Cordelia Strube has won the 2016 Toronto Book Award for her novel On the Shores of Darkness, There Is Light (ECW Press).
