  • 2012 World Fantasy Awards

    August 8th, 2012

    We are pleased to announce that two members of the FE family, artist Julie Dillon (Sails & Sorcery) and author Catherynne M. Valente (“Proverbs of Hell” in The Stories in Between) have both been nominated for World Fantasy Awards.

    Ms. Valente has been nominated for her novella, “Silently and Very Fast,” while Ms. Dillon is being recognized for her work as an illustrator. Both are fabulous artists in their fields, and both nominations are well deserved.

    The entire nomination list is below, along with a couple of sample illustrations from Ms. Dillon’s work in Sails & Sorcery.
