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!!))
