Ann and Jeff VanderMeer won the British Fantasy Award for Best Anthology in Brighton at the weekend with their huge book, The Weird. We lock horns again over the World Fantasy Awards in Toronto at the start of next month. The Weird is once more up against Gutshot, but they’ve also got The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities in contention. Also shortlisted are old friends Steve Jones with his A Book of Horrors and Ellen Datlow with Blood and Other Cravings. All good people. So I’ll be (kind of) happy whatever happens… Graham Joyce will be my stand-in for the event and will say a few words on my behalf should I be lucky enough to win.
