Songs of the Dying Earth Entry Wins Locus

The anthology, a tribute to Jack Vance edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, has received several nominations in genre awards. Although it did not win the 2010 Locus Awards (instead, The New Space Opera , also edited by Gardner Dozois with Jonathan Strahan, won), a short story from the anthology did win in its category: Neil Gaiman’s “An Invocation of Incuriousity”, which had pride of place as the final story in the anthology.

Congratulations to Mr. Gaiman, and our thanks to Martin and Dozois for commissioning the story, which really was an exceptional closer to the anthology.
