World Fantasy Award nomination!

August 1st, 2011 • Posted in Book News |

Last Thursday was my birthday.  Sitting in the pub garden with family and friends, my phone buzzed and I read the email from Brett Savory – my novella The Thief of Broken Toys has been nominated for a World Fantasy Award!  Happy Birthday to me…

Icing on the cake is that CZP Publications are also nominated.

Here’s the full listing.

I’m thrilled, as you can imagine.  This is my second World Fantasy nomination, the first being for the novella Exorcising Angels, co-written with my mate Simon Clark.  With Thief also being nominated for a Shirley Jackson Award (which it didn’t win), and a British Fantasy Award (don’t know yet), these are exciting times.  You really should read it.  Honestly.

    Congratulations on the nominations. As you may have noticed, I enjoyed Thief…a lot. I’ll have to check out Exorcising Angels, too – big fan of Simon Clark.

    Congratulations on the nomination! It’s early days for my friends epic fantasy novel I’ve been helping out with. Hopefully one day he’ll get the buzz on his phone, but it’s early days yet!
