Two More Hugos, a Gemmell, the PKD, and more.

The Dervish HouseObviously, we're pretty excited about the 2010 Hugo Awards shortlist. Ian McDonald's The Dervish House makes the list of finalists for Best Novel, and yours truly (Lou Anders) makes my fifth appearance in the category of Best Editor - Long Form.

The Alchemist in the ShadowsThis news follows right on the heels of Mark Hodder's Philip K. Dick Award win for The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack.

Meanwhile, just announced is the the publication of the short list for the David Gemmell Award. Congratulations to Pierre Pevel, whose novel The Alchemist in the Shadows, originally published by Gollancz and just out from Pyr, is nominated for the Legend Award - Best Fantasy Novel, and to Todd Lockwood, whose cover for the Pyr edition of Tom Lloyd's The Ragged Man is up for the Ravenheart Award for Best Fantasy Art Cover.

Finally, congratulations again to Ian McDonald for his BSFA win for The Dervish House for Best Novel.

  1. Congratulations to you and Pyr on your awards and nominations! I read The Alchemist in one day! I rarely see anything said about the job translators do, so I want to give a shout out to whoever translated The Alchemist - it was wonderful.

    Also, congratulations on the thorough post about Norwescon - Michael and I wanted to go, but unfortunately we didn't make it. So glad you and your family enjoyed my home city!
