World Fantasy Award ballot

This year’s World Fantasy Award ballot is out:

Congrats to Ian MacLeod and to Lucius Shepard.

Regarding my own nomination, well, the first time I was nominated (back in ’96, before I got the job editing F&SF), I asked one of the judges, “Is this a case where you couldn’t nominate all the players so you nominated the manager?”

She stopped, thought, and said, “Well, yeah, that’s about right.”

I suspect that my nomination this year is the same sort of thing.  So this manager wants to take a moment to point out the fantasy stories we published in 2007:

“Two Weeks After” by M. Ramsey Chapman

“Dance of Shadows” and “The Diamond Shadow” by Fred Chappell

“The Recreation Room” by Albert E. Cowdrey
