Locus Award Finalists

From Chris Roberson, publisher of MonkeyBrain Books:

"Looks like MonkeyBrain has three horses in this race (and two of them in the same category!)."

The full list is online , but here are the relevant parts:

*Best Non-Fiction *
- About Writing, Samuel R. Delany (Wesleyan University Press)
- Blood & Thunder: The Life & Art of Robert E. Howard, Mark Finn (MonkeyBrain Books)
- The Darkening Garden: A Short Lexicon of Horror, John Clute (Payseur & Schmidt)
- James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon, Julie Phillips (St. Martin's)
- Myths for the Modern Age: Philip José Farmer's Wold Newton Universe, Win Scott Eckert (MonkeyBrain Books)

*Best Art Book *
- Cathy & Arnie Fenner, eds. Spectrum 13: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art (Underwood)
- Edward Gorey, Amphigorey Again (Harcourt)
- John Jude Palencar, Origins (Underwood Books)
- John Picacio, Cover Story (MonkeyBrain Books)
- Boris Vallejo & Julie Bell, The Fabulous Women of Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell (HarperCollins/Collins Design)

My congratulations to fellow MonkeyBrain scribe Mark Finn, and to John Picacio (who also happened to do the cover art for Myths) for his dual nomination in the category of Best Artist!

I should also point out that The Best of Philip José Farmer (Subterranean Press) is up for Best Collection.

I am very, very thankful to everyone who voted for Myths. And most grateful, once again, to all the wonderful creative mythographers who contributed to the book.

Beyond that, I'm mostly speechless right now.
