As you may or may not know, Songs of the Earth is shortlisted for the David Gemmell Morningstar award for best fantasy debut. Final round voting is now open, if you feel so inclined. Not that I’m hinting, or anything.
Then at the weekend, I got an email to tell me that Songs is also shortlisted for the Compton Crook Award, awarded by the members of the Baltimore Science Fiction Society and presented at Balticon on Memorial Day weekend.
Maybe I should have got my passport updated into my married name after all – just in case, like.
