Continuing its streak, George R.R. Martin’s and Gardner Dozois’s anthology in tribute of Jack Vance, Songs of the Dying Earth, has been nominated for a World Fantasy Award. The anthology contains excellent short stories, novelettes, and novellas from the likes of GRRM, Neil Gaiman, Tanith Lee, Glen Cook, Robert Silverberg, and many more.
Congratulations to all the nominees, particularly artists Charles Vess and John Picacio; Vess illustrated Subterranean Press’s limited edition of A Storm of Swords, while Picacio is currently working on the A Song of Ice and Fire 2011 Calendar.
The awards will be announced at the World Fantasy Convention held in Columbus, Ohio in late October.
