Brett Rogers and Ben Stevens win prestigious award

This is worth breaking silence on this blog for.

Brett Rogers and Ben Stevens have won the Society for Classical Studies Outreach Prize, for their work promoting research into classical traditions in modern science fiction and fantasy, most obviously in their books Classical Traditions in Science Fiction and Classical Traditions in Modern Fantasy, and the conference ‘The Once and Future Antiquity’, as well as various articles and blog posts and other activities at their universities.

This news I think really shows that our research subject has arrived, and is taken seriously.
