World Fantasy Award nominees announced

9th August 2012

The nominees for the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel, one of the most prestigious literary prizes in the genre, have been announced, with Stephen King and George R. R. Martin both in contention.

The award is presented annually to an author considered to have made the greatest contribution to fantasy in the past 12 months and 2012 represents King's ninth nomination in all.

He is in contention with 11/22/63, which details a time traveller's attempts to prevent the assassination of US president John F. Kennedy.

Martin is nominated for the fourth time for A Dance with Dragons, the latest instalment in the epic A Song of Fire and Ice series, but will face competition from Jo Walton, who is in contention with Among Others.

The list of nominees is completed by Lavie Tidhar, for Osama, and Christopher Buehlman, with Those Across the River.

The winner of the 2012 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel will be announced at the World Fantasy Convention, which will take place between November 1st and 4th in Toronto, Canada.
