One loves the smell of British Fantasy Awards in the morning

Much to my delighted surprise and suprised delight, “The Coffin-Maker’s Daughter” won the BFA for Best Short Story. This is especially nice when you consider the other short-listed works.

The full list of winners is available here and a sample of my story is here.

Thanks to the lovely Stephen Jones for not taking the first story I sent him for A Book of Horrors, and thanks to the wonderful Jo Fletcher of Jo Fletcher Books for publishing such an amazing and original new horror anthology! 😀

And just in case anyone thinks I’m being too calm about this, let me assure you that I am dancing around the apartment (which makes typing difficult) in my pjs, to Train’s 50 Ways to Say Goodbye.

And so I leave you with the image of a six foot tall Womble in silk boxers and uggs.

    You’ve won another award! Ho hum. There’s a news headline. “Brilliant author wins another award. ” You know how hard it is to keep coming up with new ways of saying ‘You rock!” and “Wow! Congrats, Dr A!” ? I’m thinking I’ll just do up an email template or postcards. “Congratualtions, Angela, on winning the [insert award here]. You rock!” Maybe t-shirts. And I could sell them at cons and stuff. Save everyone a whole lotta time. I could get rich!

    Oh, and profuse congrats, Dr A!! You rock!!!
