Two authors have been named as recipients of the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award for 2015. The Awards will be presented on November 8 in Saratoga Springs, NY at the World Fantasy Con Banquet. The winners are Ramsey Campbell and Sheri S. Tepper.
Following allegations concerning the administration of the British Fantasy Awards, David Howe has resigned from his position on the British Fantasy Society despite exoneration of any wrong-doing from the organization. Ramsey Campbell, the President of the organization, notes that Howe had stepped up to procure the awards, but had nothing to do with the nominations or tabulations of results and has thanked Howe for his service, particularly regarding the past year.
