MARY . DORIA . RUSSELL TbeSparrow BSFA Award • Arthur C. Clarke Award • Tiptree Award To the members '{[the BSFA I would like to express my sincere thanks to the members of the BSFA who were kind enough to vote for The Spanuw this year. Iwas thrilled speechless to receive the Best Novel award, although Imanaged to get my voice back for the Clarke prizel Thank you so velY much for this recognition. All too often in the past two years, I have heard people say, "I hate science fiction, but I loved your beok," and then they insist, "The Spanvw isn't really science fiction." Now Ican say, "Oh yes it isl And I can prove it!" Sincerely , 15 June 1998 'CONTENTS' Hi
