Susanna Clarke deserves the novel award. I hugely enjoyed her recreation of a Thackeray novel. Twas as if the old Victorian had happened to write a tale about magic.

Wow, great news! "The Growlimb" had many of us rooting for it.

And as more time passes from having finished STRANGE & NORRELL, it continues to expand in my mind. The best fantasy novel I've read in many years; and yes, an award richly deserved. Those who complained it needed a firmer editorial hand will get no support from me. It occupied me for many months and I did not resent a single detour or circuitous sentence. It is one of the few fantasy novels I can name that contains, hm, yes, actual magic.

Congratulations to Michael Shea for the award for "The Growlimb." That story was just reprinted in Stephen Jones' Best New Horror #16.

It is a great story.

It's great to see Michael Shea win some much-deserved recognition. If he stops by here, congratulations to him!

Anything new by Shea coming up in F&SF?

Nope, nothing in inventory. At the convention, Michael said he has been working on two novels.

That was an error, and I'm sincerely sorry for it rb. If this had a delete function I'd delete everything after "didn't like it."

Dear Colleagues--your good opinion is, as always, the headiest wine. Thank you from the heart. Next novels, Mr. Cannyharme and Apricot Brandy. Next novella, "The Breathing". You give my fingers wings (grotesque images, of course, my specialty)
