For the second year in a row Leo Grin’s Howard journal has garnered a World Fantasy Award nomination. Mark Finn was also nominated for his Howard biography, Blood and Thunder: The Life and Art of Robert E. Howard. It would be great if both these important Howard publications brought home an award. Unfortunately, I won’t be there this year to cheer them on, but I’m sure there will be many others who will in Saratoga Springs, NY this November. While it is too early to vote (you can vote if you attended last year’s convention or were a supporting member) keep an eye on the Con’s website for the voting ballot.
