Shall we call her Ip-Woman? 

Praise her with great praises anyway!

Proud to be a fan since 1986!

> SFWA PRESIDENT, MARY ROBINETTE KOWAL:
> 
> "Lois McMaster Bujold has had an undeniable influence on the field of
> science- fiction and fantasy. From the the Vorkosigan Saga, to the Chalion
> series and the Sharing Knife series, she finds new ways to explore the
> genre, mixing and matching everything from regency to science fiction. With
> dozens of books in multiple languages, while continuing to write, she is one
> of the most prolific authors working today. Importantly, she also serves as
> a role model for many writers, including me. In A Civil Campaign, she wrote,
> "Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know
> about yourself." There is no doubt about Lois McMaster Bujold's honor and
> becoming SFWA's newest Grand Master only underlines her sterling
> reputation."
> 
> The Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award will be presented along with
> the Nebula AwardsR during the annual SFWA Nebula Conference, which will run
> from May 28th-31st and features seminars and panel discussions on the craft
> and business of writing, SFWA's annual business meeting, and receptions.
> During that weekend, a mass autograph session will also take place at the
> Warner Center Marriott Woodland Hills and is open to the public.
> 
> The Nebula AwardsR, presented annually, recognize the best works of science
> fiction and fantasy published in the United States as selected by members of
> the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The first Nebula AwardsR
> were presented in 1966.
> 
> The Nebula AwardsR include four fiction awards, a game writing award, the
> Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation, the Andre Norton Award
> for Outstanding Young Adult Science Fiction or Fantasy Book. SFWA also
> administers the Kate Wilhelm Solstice Award, the Kevin O'Donnell Jr. Service
> to SFWA Award, and the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award.
