World Fantasy Awards Recognize Translations

The short lists for this year’s World Fantasy Awards were announced this week, and can be found in full here. They contain a number of works of interest to us.

In the Anthology category there is Three Messages and a Warning: Contemporary Mexican Short Stories of the Fantastic, edited by Eduardo Jiménez Mayo & Chris N. Brown (Small Beer Press).

In the Collection category there is Jagannath by Karin Tidbeck (Cheeky Frawg), one story from which, “Augusta Prima”, is short-listed for our awards.

And in the Special Award Professional category there is a mention for Lucia Graves for her translation of The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafón (Weidenfeld & Nicholson; Harper).

We are delighted to see this recognition of translators and translated work in these major awards.
