Daryl’s World of Fantasy

So here’s a dream come true: getting nominated for a World Fantasy Award. Pandemonium is in the list with these worthies:

The House of the Stag, Kage Baker (Tor)
The Shadow Year, Jeffrey Ford (Morrow)
The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman (HarperCollins; Bloomsbury)
Tender Morsels, Margo Lanagan (Allen & Unwin; Knopf)

I’ve heard good things about some of these upstarts. People tell me that Neil Gaiman guy is pretty good. And oh yeah, Jeff Ford? I still have my earlobes, Jeff! (See the Whoosh and Thunk below.)

  1. Jenn: Yes, come! I can’t promise Win, but I can promise amusement in either case. I can cry in my beer or laugh in it.

    And YS: hopefully a package is heading toward you.


  2. All night long — swear to Jebus — I’ve been singing REMs “It’s the end of the world and we know it” — and singing the first of it in French. And now, thanks to Google Translate…

    C’est la fin du monde et nous savons qu’il…

  3. Congratulations! I see they list the names of the judges…is it too late to offer them some not-so-subtle bribery? I’m sure they don’t need it (they obviously chose Pandemonium already), but everyone loves some swag!

  4. Congratulations Daryl!

    As you’re one of the first authors I read and liked this year (Unpossible, in Year’s Best Fantasy 8), and since we actually exchanged an email or two earlier this year as well, I have decided to become an official Daryl Gregory fan. Along those lines, when I checked out a stack of Locus magazines yesterday, I made sure to pick up the one you were interviewed in and read it quickly. Good stuff, although I AM a little disappointed that the David Bowie title for the book didn’t make the final cut. Well hey, you can’t win ’em all.

    Good luck with the award, and I really look forward to reading it!

    As for little me, I’ll be at GenCon this month going through their writer’s symposium events in order to kick myself in the seat of my own pants to finish my first novel by the end of the year. Wish me luck.
