When I discovered the nominations for the British Fantasy Society’s British Fantasy Awards 2020 had been announced I clicked through to the web site to see which of my friends had been nominated… and much to my astonishment I saw my name!
I’m truly honoured and delighted to be on the shortlist for Best Collection for my book, The Boughs Withered (When I Told Them My Dreams), published by NewCon Press. And to be listed alongside the hugely talented Paul Tremblay, Georgina Bruce, Aliette de Bodard, and Laura Mauro!
Luckily I was sitting down when I found out.
I cannot thank my editor and publisher Ian Whates enough. He has always been very supportive of my work, which is so appreciated. Cheers to Daniele Serra for the cover. And much love to Kim Newman for writing the introduction!
My thanks to the jurors and to the BFS for selecting my work for this shortlist!
You can find information on how to purchase the collection as a physical copy or as an ebook here.
