Claudia Casper

Vancouver author Claudia Casper’s The Mercy Journals (Arsenal Pulp Press) has won her this year’s 2017 Philip K. Dick Award, recognizing the best original science-fiction title published for the first time in the U.S. the year prior. The novel, set in a dystopian future, centres on the titular Mercy, a former soldier whose suppressed trauma unravels amid a new romance and the hope that his family may still be alive.

Casper received her award at a ceremony on April 15 at the sci-fi and fantasy convention Norwescon 40 in Seattle.
