Carnegie Medal

This Award for distinguished works written for children was established in 1936 in memory of the Scots-born industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919). Though not specifically a genre award, it has several times been presented for Fantasy and supernatural fiction whose themes border on or overlap Children's SF and Young Adult genre work, and in 2011 went for the first time to an outright sf novel: Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking, Book Three: Monsters of Men (2010). Below we list the Carnegie recipients who have entries, or are otherwise discussed, in this encyclopedia. [DRL]
