The World Fantasy Award nominees have been announced, causing my reading list to bulge slightly. They are available at the 2015 Convention Website, but are also reproduced for you here below, in as fancy and readable a format as I am able to manage. I apologise for the lack of an image on the front page, but I just couldn’t bring myself to put a picture of that awful statuette on my website.
