A short, celebratory blog.

First, the World Fantasy Award nominations have been announced – congratulations to all nominees, but especially to my friends Steve Duffy, Barbara Roden and Ray Russell for the writing nominations, and for Ray (again!) and his partner Rosalie  and to Chris and Barbara Roden (again!) for their nomination for running Tartarus Press and Ash Tree Press respectively. Exotic Gothic 3, edited by Danel Olsen and containing my story ‘Mami Wata’ is up for best anthology, so congratulations to Danel and all the other authors involved as well! The full list of nominations can be seen here:

Another announcement (this one already mentioned, but more detailed here):

3:00-4:00pm: “A MAMMOTH SIGNING” presented by Robinson Publishing: Come along and join editor STEPHEN JONES and numerous contributors for the launch of the new anthologies ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE! and THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR #21, plus THE BEST OF BEST NEW HORROR.

PROBERT, SARAH PINBOROUGH, NICHOLAS ROYLE, ROBERT SHEARMAN, MANDY SLATER, LISA TUTTLE, SIMON KURT UNSWORTH, MARK VALENTINE and STEPHEN VOLK, along with cover artist VINCENT CHONG. A Free Glass of Wine with every book purchased! (But come early, stocks are strictly limited.)

 
And you are, of course, invited to the following later in the afternoon:
 
5:00-6:00pm: “THE BRIGHTON BASH”: As a “thank you” from WORLD HORROR CONVENTION 2010 and a “welcome” from FANTASYCON 2011, come along and have a glass of wine with the organisers and guests, and sign up now for next year’s 30th Anniversary convention at the special reduced rate offered exclusively this weekend! WHC Books and T-shirts for sale! Giveaways! Special Announcements! And much more!
Of course, you’ve gotta come to FCon to access these little beauties, so what are you waiting for? Join the BFS and get an FCon ticket! And remember, at 2.00 on the Saturday, Never Again will launch with cake! I found out this week that my story ‘A Place for Feeding’ is right next to Joe Lansdale’s story, which is pretty cool. I’m happy. You?
No other news this week. No writing done. Been lazy. So, on that note, back to your lives, Lords and Ladies!
