Correction to World Fantasy Judges

In our January 2015 issue we announced the 2015 World Fantasy Award judges, but mistakenly listed the names and addresses for the 2012 award judges, and provided details on the 2012 convention. We regret the error. Our previous post on this site was accurate.

The correct information is as follows:

The judges for the 2015 World Fantasy Awards have been empaneled. All forms of fantasy qualify; only living authors and editors are eligible; all books must have a 2014 publication date and all magazines a 2014 cover date.

To be considered for awards, all materials must be received by all five judges and the convention by June 1, 2015:

Gemma Files
313 Richmond St. East #768
Toronto, Ontario
M5A 4S7

Nina K. Hoffman
PO Box 10858
Eugene, OR

Bénédicte Lombardo
50, rue du Clos
77670 Saint Mammes

Bruce McAllister
528 E. Palmyra Avenue
Orange, CA

Robert Shearman
65 Telford Avenue
Streatham Hill
London SW2 4XL
United Kingdom

A copy should also go to:

Peter Dennis Pautz, President
World Fantasy Awards Association
PO Box 43
Mukilteo WA

Packages should be labeled “Promotional materials — not for sale or resale — no commercial value — World Fantasy Awards materials.” Winners will be announced at the 2015 World Fantasy Awards Banquet and Ceremony during the 41st World Fantasy Convention, November 5-8, 2015, at the Saratoga City Center and Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga Springs, NY. (Life Achievement nominees will not be released; the winner will be announced in advance of the banquet.)

All judges prefer hard copies but submissions may be emailed to Pautz for forwarding instead. Gemma Files & Bruce McAllister can accept PDFs, Nina K. Hoffman can accept .mobi, and Bénédicte Lombardo & Robert Shearman can accept both PDFs and .mobi.
