Winners of Terry Pratchett's debut writers' award revealed

3rd June 2011

Terry Pratchett has revealed the winners of his inaugural GBP 20,000 award for debut writers, Anywhere but Here, Anywhen but Now.

Michael Logan and David Logan, who are unrelated, were chosen from almost 500 writers for their novels Apocalypse Cow and Half Sick of Shadows, respectively.

The prize is awarded to a writer who is previously unpublished and the only requirement is that the story is set on Earth, with Pratchett revealing the judges engaged in 'hours of debate' before coming to a decision.

'It was a long deliberation and although to some it might seem a cop-out to split a prize, we decided that since the existence of the prize was to find new talent then this was the happiest decision to make,' he explained.

The winners will split the GBP 20,000 between them and each will receive a publishing contract with Pratchett's current publisher, Transworld.

Pratchett was himself honoured at last year's National Book Awards, when he received the outstanding achievement prize for his contribution to literature.
