Via George R.R. Martin, we’ve learned that the British Fantasy Awards have their longlist of nominees—all works recommended by a British Fantasy Society or FantasyCon member—posted, and Songs of the Dying Earth: Stories in Honor of Jack Vance is included for Best Anthology. Edited by GRRM and Gardner Dozois, the anthology is a tribute to Jack Vance, containing a terrific groups of authors (including Martin) who share stories in Vance’s most famous setting, the Dying Earth.
Also on the long lists are three stories from the anthology, novellas by Matthew Hughes and Walter Jon Williams and the short story by Robert Silverberg. Congratulations to both of the editors and the writers so recognized, and our hopes they find their way onto the shortlists.
