British Fantasy Awards 2017

A Tiding of Magpies has been shortlisted for the BFS Awards this year. I am stunned and very happy! It has some very stiff competition –

Best collection

  • The Parts We Play – Stephen Volk
  • Secret Language – Neil Williamson
  • Sharp Ends – Joe Abercrombie
  • Some Will Not Sleep – Adam Nevill
  • A Tiding of Magpies – Pete Sutton
  • The Unheimlich Menoeuvre – Tracy Fahey

and I’m very much having Imposter Syndrome over it!

It’s great to see a lot of personal friends also shorlisted and big congrats to everyone & good luck!

I am one of the jurors for the Novella category and I know it’s going to be hard to pick an outright winner having read most of them so far…
