Four British Fantasy Award nominations, zero wins. Surely that must be some kind of record. Can I at least have an award for that?
No? Okay, then. It was worth a try.
Congratulations to those who did win, of course, but amid the trumpeting of the winners, I'd just like to share my commiserations with my fellow losers - especially Paul Meloy (who got my vote) and Simon Bestwick (whose name was mistakenly left off the printed nominations list so didn't even get to hear it read out).
