The Arthur C. Clarke Award 2022 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm Deep Wheel Orcadia by Harry Josephine Giles as the winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2022.

Luminous, groundbreaking and effortlessly readable, this first-ever lyrical science fiction novel written in the Orkney dialect mines the themes of generation and gender politics, love and belonging through a story of two misfits who meet on a distant space station.

 

Deep Wheel Orcadia is the sort of book that makes you rethink what SF can do and makes the reading experience feel strange in a new and thrilling way. It’s as if language itself becomes the book’s hero and the genre is all the richer for it.”

Dr Andrew M. Butler, Chair of the Judges
