DAVID GEMMELL AWARDS FOR FANTASY 2013
Here’s a press release recently sent out by the Gemmell Awards committee. Please note that, as stated, the awards ceremony is an open, free event, but does not confer admittance to World Fantasy Convention. You have to be a paid, registered member of the convention to attend that, and memberships have now closed, having reached their limit. Though if you do want to attend the con you might be able to pick up an unwanted ticket from someone unable to attend. It’s worth checking WFC’s Facebook page in this respect, here: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/164901946886664/.
