Jack Trevor Story Memorial Cup

Howard Waldrop was named the winner of the Jack Trevor Story Memorial Cup. The award is given on an occasional basis for a work of fiction or body of work which best celebrates the spirit of author Jack Trevor Story. The award carries a prize of $1,000 and the stipulation that the recipient spend the entire amount within two weeks with nothing to show for it at the end. When Story, who died in 1992, was in front of a bankruptcy judge, he commented “You know how it is, judge. Two hundred or two thousand. It always lasts a week to a fortnight.”
