Margo Lanagan is a superstar!
The World Fantasy Awards are the most prestigious awards in the speculative fiction genre. And Margo Lanagan now has four of them. Count them. Four.
What a good idea - let's count them then, shall we?
for 'Singing My Sister Down' which, as we have noted before, has a very special place in our hearts.And 4! 4! 4! 4!for Sea-Hearts.
Sea-Hearts was first published in X6 - A Novellanthology, edited by Keith Stevenson. It's a tender and beautiful selkie story, quivering with love, magics and heartbreak. As Margo says, it is 'soaked in tears and sea-water'.
OUTSTANDING! Congratulations, Margo. Huge congratulations.
But wait, there's more. Well, there will be. Margo is currently hard at work transforming the Sea-Hearts novella into a novel. We are so excited about this we can barely breathe. In fact, the only thing keeping us breathing is this gorgeous cover for Yellowcake which is Margo's next collection of short stories.*
* So so spooky and beautiful. And, yes, there's a little bit of waiting for this one too, because it's not published until March, but March is not far away, people. After all, it's almost Christmas time. Oh, dear, did we say that out loud?
