Just found this from one of my RSS feeds.

Three authors have been named as recipients of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award for 2010. The Awards will be presented on October 31 in Columbus, Ohio at the World Fantasy Con Banquet. The three winners are Brian Lumley, Terry Pratchett, and Peter Straub.

8) :)

Well done Terry, but an interesting combination of authors as the other 2 are from the horror genre. :?
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Honestly. Kids today! :wink:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Isn't the horror genre just fantasy with attitude? :wink:

Well done Sir Terry! :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Well done Sir Terry! :D
Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.
