RRETROSPECTIVE NOMINATED FOR INTERNATIONAL HORROR AWARD
March 5, 2004
GRRM: A RRetrospective, my massive half-million word collection from Subterranean Press, has been nominated by the International Horror Guild as the Best Collection of 2003.
The IHG Awards, presently in their tenth year, recognize “outstanding achievement in the fields of horror and dark fantasy.” Nominations and awards are decided by a jury. The winners will be announced Saturday, April 10, at the annual World Horror Convention in Phoenix, Arizona. Although GRRM is not purely a horror collection, the judges felt it contained “more than enough first-rate horror fiction to justify its nomination.”
Needless to say, I was as pleased as I was surprised by the nomination. It’s a distinguished list of finalists, and I’m proud to be a part of it.
The trade edition of GRRM: A RRetrospective sold out immediately on publication last September, but copies of the signed, numbered, slipcased limited edition are still available from Subterranean Press at http://www.subterraneanpress.com/
