I’ve just learned that both The Kingdom of Bones and Plots and Misadventures feature in the recommendations list for the British Fantasy Awards, voted by the membership of The British Fantasy Society and announced each year at Fantasycon.
It’s not an actual nomination or even a shortlisting, so let’s not get carried away. But it’s a thrill to see the titles in there, amongst such great company. The Kingdom of Bones gets a mention for the August Derleth best novel award, and Plots and Misadventures is listed under the recommendations for Best Collection.
The BFS membership will choose the shortlist in an online vote that runs until August 1st. Best to do my bragging while I still can.
