Darrell Awards

The Darrell Awards are intended to promote literacy in the Mid-South by recognizing the best published Midsouth regional science fiction, fantasy, and horror. The Awards consider a work Midsouth regional if the author lives in the Mid-South or if the work prominently features the Mid-South. The awards are named after Dr. Darrell C. Richardson, founding member of Memphis Science Fiction Association.

The awards were begun in 1996 by the Memphis Science Fiction Association and are now sponsored by the Darrell Awards Jury which selects the winners, which are announced at MidSouthCon.
