YOU WIN SOME, YOU LOSE SOME

October 30, 2006

A FEAST FOR CROWS is now three for three. I’ve lost the Hugo Award to Robert Charles Wilson and SPIN, the British Fantasy Award to Neil Gaiman’s ANANSI BOYS, and the Quill Award to Diana Gabaldon for A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES. Good books, all.

     No need to send me any consolations, though. It’s an honor just to be nominated, and I can console myself knowing that an awful lot of people seem to be reading and enjoying FEAST. Bantam Spectra released its mass market paperback edition on September 26, and it has been showing up on bestseller lists all over the US and Canada:
