We have just heard that on the shortlist for the 2006 World Fantasy Award there are two reasons for Telos to be celebrating.
First of all, Simon Morden’s stunning novella Another War has been shortlisted in the BEST NOVELLA category. The others in this category are: Laird Barron for “The Imago Sequence”, Michael Cunningham for “In the Machine”, Joe Hill for Voluntary Committal, Tanith Lee for “UOUS” and Kelly Link for “Magic for Beginners”.
Secondly, and much to our surprise and delight, Telos Publishing is in the shortlist for the SPECIAL AWARD, NON-PROFESSIONAL category. Also up for this Award are: The Friends of Arthur Machen (for Faunus, Machenalia, and The Life of Arthur Machen), Leo Grin (for The Cimmerian), Jess Nevins (for The Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana, from MonkeyBrain Books) and Rodger Turner, Neil Walsh, and Wayne MacLaurin (for SF Site).
The Awards are announced in Austin, Texas during the World Fantasy Convention from 2 to 5 November 2006, and we wish all the shortlisted nominees the very best of luck.
