The Speculative Literature Foundation (SLF) is pleased to announce the results of the second annual Fountain Award, which carries a cash prize of $1000. The winning story is "The Annals of Eelin-Ok" by Jeffrey Ford, first published in THE FAERY REEL, an anthology edited by Ellen Datlow. Ten other stories received honorable mentions.

The Speculative Literature Foundation is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the interests of readers, writers, editors and publishers in the speculative literature community.

"Speculative literature" is a catch-all term meant to inclusively span the breadth of fantastic literature, encompassing literature ranging from hard and soft science fiction to epic fantasy to ghost stories to folk and fairy tales to slipstream to magical realism to modern mythmaking -- any literature containing a fabulist or speculative element.
