I was amazed yesterday to discover that my novel Triumff: Her Majesty's Hero has been longlisted for Best Novel at the 2010 British Fantasy Awards, organised by the British Fantasy Society. The longlist will become a shortlist later this year, and then the winner decided, but it's a big deal to get this far, and it puts me in some illustrious company. You can view the longlist here.
When I did so myself, I scrolled down and discovered that Guardians of the Galaxy had ALSO been longlisted in the Best Comic/Graphic Novel category. I will probably be wearing a silly smile for the next few days.
