Double Victory

Last night in London SFX magazine announced the winners of their annual readers's awards, and I am pleased and proud to report that A DANCE WITH DRAGONS won for Best Novel, and HBO's GAME OF THRONES as Best New TV Show.



I was not able to be in the UK for the awards (though I will be, come April, for Eastercon, and signings in Bath and London), so I taped my acceptance speech ahead of time.

Thanks for everyone who voted... and to all my readers everywhere, who waited for the book so patiently, and have received it with so much enthusiasm and acclaim.

(For a full list of winners, check out the SFX website. And do be sure to play Neil Gaiman's acceptance speech, it's a hoot and a half.)

((Now all I need to make the day perfect is a Giants victory in the SuperBowl. GO BIG BLUE!!))

Thanks you for keep writing!! And congratulations for every one of those awards, you deserve'em all.

In Spain we're still waiting for the DwD's translation although the most impatient ones (like me) have already read it in english!!

Well deserved
All your hard work (and despair and moments of hair tugging) have paid off. I, for one, am grateful that you take such care with your stories, deadlines be damned. Thank you for persevering and for holding yourself to such a high standard. You done good.

And even though I'm not a fan of Eli (spurn my Chargers, will you (although in hindsight it's blatantly obvious the Mannings made the right choice)), I'll be pulling for the Giants defense to destroy the Pats and take home the Lombardi trophy.

Also, nice vest!

Fun speeches
Gaiman's was indeed great. Stan Lee's also bears watching. George, you're in company that includes quite a few overacting thespians, maybe you should cry on camera or something next time. Can't let yourself be outdone like that on a regular basis... :-)
