In today’s OMG Gazette, I’ve been nominated for the Manly Wade Wellman Award for Ghost Train to New Orleans! It was a huge thrill to win last year for The Shambling Guide to New York City, and I was super-surprised to get another nomination this year! The other nominees are:
- Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty
- Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by A.J. Hartley and David Hewson
- The Sea Without a Shore by David Drake
- Reign of Ash by Gail Z. Martin
- Bad Wizard by James Maxey
This award was created to recognize outstanding achievement in science fiction and fantasy novels written by North Carolina authors. It’s voted on by the combined membership of North Carolina science fiction and fantasy conventions (illogiCon, ConCarolinas, ConTemporal, and ConGregate). It will be given out in July.
Thanks to everyone who nominated me!
