The Eurocon took place this weekend in St. Petersburg. I wish I could have been there, but Russia is just too difficult for someone like me right now. However, there is good news. The ESFS Awards were announced yesterday, and I know some of the winners. In particular:
- Hall of Fame, Best Author: China Miéville
- Hall of Fame, Best Publisher: Gollancz
- Hall of Fame, Best Promoter: Mihaela Marija Perković
- Spirit of Dedication, Children’s Books Creator: Ruth F Long (tied with Anton Lomaev)
- Encouragement Awards: Liz Bourke (and 8 others)
The full list of winners is available at the ESFS website.
Also in Eurocon news, the 2016 convention in Barcelona has expanded its GoH list. The line-up is now: Aliette de Bodard (France), Richard Morgan (UK), Jun Miyazaki (Hungary), Enrique Corominas (Spain), Andrzej Sapkowski (Poland) & Johanna Sinisalo (Finland). That one I do plan to get to.
