Exciting news from France – ‘Crashing Heaven’, wonderfully translated as ‘Station: La Chute’ by Florence Dolisi, has been nominated for the Prix Utopiales, alongside works from modern masters like David Mitchell and Karin Tidbeck. It’s thrilling to be in such wonderful company! Now to keep my fingers crossed it’s awarded at the start of November.
I’ve been chatting to the organisers of the ever-excellent Nine Worlds convention about some very interesting panels – stay tuned for more news. And of course I’ll be wandering around it all on the 10th and 11th of August, along with a probable stop at Fantasy in the Court on the 9th. See you there!
I’m travelling to the beautiful town of Épinal to take part in this year’s Les Imaginales festival, alongside SF and Fantasy writers from across Europe and beyond. I’ll be there from the 24th to the 26th May – if you’re around, come and say ‘bonjour’ (or ‘guten tag’ or ‘hola’ or ‘ciao’…).
There’s a pull down menu above which will take you to a selection of Crashing Heaven / Waking Hell reviews. And of course there’s Goodreads – here’s their page for Crashing Heaven and here’s the one for Waking Hell.
