The Michael Rubin Book Award is a contest open to students of San Francisco State University. It is held annually, and the winning manuscript is chosen by a different guest judge each year. This year's contest was judged by Frederic Tuten, an American novelist, short story writer and essayist. The winning manuscript is published by Fourteen Hills Press in a limited one-run printing.
