I'm delighted to report that The Comic Strip Companion has been shortlisted for an award.
My book has made it on to the final ballot for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards, in the Best Professional Publication Category.
The Vogels are administered by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Association of New Zealand.
Voting will take place at AuContraire, the national science fiction convention, to be held in Wellington from 12-14 July 2013. Members of SFFANZ or Au Contraire are eligible to vote.
I'd also like to congratulate my friend Adam Christopher who has received two nominations, for Best Novel and Best New Talent.
The full list of nominations can be found here.
My book didn't win an award. Oh well, at least it was nominated. Better luck next time!
