Lose Some, Win Some

So GAME OF THRONES failed to win either of the Writers Guild Awards it was nominated for. Congrats to THE GOOD WIFE and TRUE DETECTIVE and all the other winners.

All is not lost on the awards front, however. ROGUES won a Stabby!

The Stabby is given by the folks on Reddit. ROGUES won as last year's best anthology. Which is very cool. Thank you, Redditters. And thanks to my co-editor, Gardner Dozois, and to an amazing lineup of writers, whose talents made the book what it was.

The trophy is very cool as well: an engraved dagger. I have not received mine yet, but here's a picture of someone else's:

I am informed that Gardner Dozois and I will both receive one of these. I'll post a picture when it turns up. And it will be great to have an award that I can use to stab my enemies. Battering them to death with my Hugos just takes too long.

Meanwhile, on other fronts, we've also been informed that the audiobook of DANGEROUS WOMEN (the previous massive crossgenre anthology that Gardner and I put together) has been nominated for an Audie Award. We're a finalist in the category of Short Story Collections. For a full list of nominees, check out: https://www.audiopub.org/Audies15/2015_Audie_Awards_Release.pdf

Thanks again to Gardner and to our writers, to Janet Stark and all the great folks at Random House Audio, and to the amazing cast of voice actors and readers they assembled: Claudia Black, Scott Brick, Karen Dotrice, Jonathan Frakes, Iain Glen, Janis Ian, Stana Katic, Inna Korobkina, Jenna Lamia, Lee Meriwether, Emily Rankin, Maggi-Meg Reed, Fred Sanders, Allan Scott-Douglas, Sophie Turner, Harriet Walter, and Jake Weber.

Congrats! that's a crazy award. Better they give those to the winners than the losers I suppose...

That award needs to be used as a prop on GOT. It would make for an excellent easter egg

Don't Forget!
Don't forget the excellent voices of Roy Dotrice and David Greenlee as well!

All the best swords have names. Call it Revenge and stick them with the pointy end! :)
I'm very happy for the nomination of Dangerous Women. Audiobooks are a recent discovery for me, I'm enchanted by the work of Mr. Roy Dotrice with ADWD. Whose is the voice of the Princess and the Queen?
Greetings from Rome!

Judging from the size of blade relative to handle it looks more like a short sword. Cool prize though :) Congrats!

Alas just as power is power, the pen is not mightier than the award.
