Year’s Best editor David Afsharirad announced the winner at the Baen Traveling Roadshow, at DragonCon. Though Lee & Miller were not on hand to accept the award, Baen executive editor Jim Minz read a speech prepared by the authors.
“We’re pleased to be here, at least metaphorically . . . to stand as the proud parents of ‘Wise Child,’ which readers have chosen—out of a very stiff field!—as the Best Military and Adventure SF of 2016,” Lee & Miller wrote. They added, “Thank you, readers, for reading, and for voting, and for naming ‘Wise Child’ one of the best!”
