Ghosts of Ascalon, the Guild Wars book I wrote with Jeff Grubb, just picked up a nomination for the Scribe Award for Best Speculative Original. The International Media Tie-In Writers (IAMTW) gives out the Scribe Awards at Comic-Con every year to the best in tie-in novels of the past year. In the past, the judges have nominated my Mutant Chronicles and Knights of the Silver Dragon: Prophecy of the Dragons novels, and Mutant Chronicles won the Best Game-Related Adapted novel award in 2009.
This time around, Ghosts of Ascalon is up against some stiff competition in its category from David Mack, Sean Williams, Keith R. A. DeCandido, and Nathan Long. I don’t know what the book’s chances of winning are, but I’m proud to be in the company of such great authors. It really is an honor just to have the book nominated.
Be sure to check out the IAMTW blog for a full list of the nominations in each category, plus the naming of Peter David as this year’s grandmaster. Congratulations to Peter and all the rest of the nominees!
