Recipient’s Statement for the Speculative Fictions and Cultures of Science Book Award 2020

Melody Jue


It is an incredible honor to have Wild Blue Media receive the Speculative Futures and Cultures of Science Award. I am grateful to the awards committee, Paweł, Amy, Lisa, and Sherryl, for their hard work and careful attention to all of the book nominations, especially on top of their extra responsibilities this particular year. In many ways, Wild Blue Media marks a pre-pandemic moment for me of thinking about the ocean as a science fictional milieu that one can physically or imaginatively immerse in. While this past year has leaned more on the imaginative side, I hope that Wild Blue Media encourages an expansive sense of science-fictionality across a variety of sensory environments. I would also like to thank Colin Milburn, Kate Hayles, Priscilla Wald, and Gerry Canavan for helping shape and stretch my own science fictional imagination in Wild Blue Media and beyond.
