So in case you thought it was maybe just me who thought L.D. Lewis is awesome, it really, really isn’t. The Speculative Literature Foundation has awarded Lewis with their 2017 Working Class Writers Grant. The SLF is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting literary quality in speculative fiction, by encouraging promising new writers (among other initiatives.) The writing sample that Lewis submitted for the grant was A Ruin of Shadows, and Working Class Writers Grant juror Rebecca Gibson had this perfectly lovely thing to say about the novella:
“LD Lewis has created characters who stride off the page into your brain, provoking real emotions and responses. You can smell the sea of her opening pages, and taste the dust stirred up by her war rhinos. Her exciting story makes you need to know what happens next!”
