So this happened.

Last night at the 57th Southern California Journalism Awards ceremony, my Reason article "Not Your Parent's Dystopias: Millennial Fondness for Worlds Gone Wrong" won the 2015 award for Best Magazine Review/Criticism/Column. The Los Angeles Press Club kindly added these official comments: "What a great job of looking at dystopias past and present through a cultural lens. Regardless of where the future takes us, Amy H. Sturgis has done a great job of explaining how writers and others have gotten us where we are."

My sincere thanks to the L.A. Press Club for this honor! Congratulations to the other winners and nominees.

Oh, thank you! There was a lot of doubt on my end - even the nomination was unexpected - so I'm most definitely over the moon. :)

I think that it's nice to be over the moon! Congratulations again. Pity I did not know you were out there on the West Coast, maybe could have met up. Would love to say hello in the flesh!

I'd love to meet you in person, too! Alas, I wasn't there. My editors accepted my award for me.
