Congratulations on the nomination!
It may also be a good excuse to avoid Blackpool, though it rains just as much in Seattle. Liz Williams has been to Norwescon and may be able to compare the two.

Thanks, Cheryl. I only got the news myself a couple of minutes ago - Jeff V was kind enough to e-mail me. I'm only just poking my head over the parapet after a flu ridden Xmas/New Year, so still slightly dazed. But what a great way to start 2004!!
Seattle definitely sounds more exotic - I tend to associate it with episodes of the X-files and Madonna pouring hot wax on Willem Dafoe's nipples, so the rain doesn't bother me so much. Also, I'm developing a Glaswegian's glum inurement to bad weather lately. In fact, I was in Seattle briefly about a decade ago and it didn't rain at all (which should give you some idea exactly how briefly) and from what I remember I really liked the place.
Happy New Year Etc

Oh, Seattle is a wonderful place. But you should still talk to Liz about Norwescon. The hotel is at SeaTac airport rather than in Seattle, and I understand that the con is very Goth. Go anyway, because you've got a good chance of winning, but check what to expect in advance.

I'll second the "seattle is a nice place" sentiment. My wife and I took our honeymoon there, as well as our five year anniversary. Anyway, enjoy seattle, and good luck.

Good luck, Richard. Kickass book.

Yeah--a very kick-ass book. #2 (only to the force-of-nature that is Lucius Shepard) on my best-of list, to be posted sometime today on Fantastic Metropolis.

This ass-kicks teaching EFL, eh? Big congrats, and may the best man (you) win the Dick Award. and if Carbon wins this year, I think Angels may take it next.
And in your acceptance speech, don't forget to say poor Phil wouldn't have liked how they corrupted his story for the film Impostor (for some reason, called here 'Infiltrado') Though Gary Sinise was great in the part.

Congrats, Richard! Very well deserved, and not at all surprising that you won.

Yes, it's official - I have a Dick.
Thank you all very much.

Excellent - there's hope for the science fiction world yet. Well deserved.
