World Fantasy Award
Congratulations to UK artist Les Edwards, who, under his nom-de-brush Edward Miller, has won the World Fantasy Award for Best Artist 2008 (CLICK). I've lost track of how many awards Les has won. He was nominated for five last year alone. This is one of his latest paintings: a fantasy ship so huge that its sails are lost in the clouds, designed for the cover of The Rats and the Ruling Sea by Robert V. S. Redick (2009), the second book in the Chathrand Voyage series. Les has updated his website with new artwork and also new prices to take account of sterling losing value against the US dollar and that euro-thingy.
