On to other, less-brooding matters.
The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers has announced the nominees for the first annual Scribe Awards, honoring excellence in licensed tie-in writing (in many ways the Rodney Dangerfield of the fiction section) for books published in 2006. The Awards will be presented at Comiccon in San Diego. The nominees for best novel are:
ALIAS APO: STRATEGIC RESERVE by Christina York
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: PORTAL THROUGH TIME by Alice Henderson
DRAGONLANCE: WARRIOR'S HEART by Stephen Sullivan
KNIGHTS OF THE SILVER DRAGON: PROPHECY OF THE DRAGONS by Matt Forbeck
Stephen (Sully) Sullivan and Matt Forbeck are both long-time veterans of the gaming industry AND members of the Alliterates. Congratulations to both, and we look forward to seeing the two square off in a steel cage match for the prize.
