Sweet News

As I just found out, Vélum has been short-listed for the Prix Europeén Utopiales 2009. Awesome!

The full short-list is:


Le Déchronologue de Stéphane Beauverger, éditions La Volte
Le Livre de toutes les heures, Vol. 1. Vélum d’Hal Duncan, éditions Denoël
En panne sèche d’Andreas Eschbach, éditions L’ Atalante
Gagner la guerre : récit du vieux royaume de Jean-Philippe Jaworski, éditions Les Moutons électriques
Roi du matin, reine du jour de Ian McDonald, éditions Denoël

I only know the McDonald sadly, as a paltry monolinguist, but that in itself is stiff competition, I'd say. So I ain't getting my hopes up. But tis well cool to be nominated. This is pretty much the Big One in European strange fiction, as I understand. Hell, it comes with a cheque!

I is a happy bunny todays.
