The Deanna Hoak World Fantasy Awards Campaign

Author and television scriptwriter Paul Cornell is launching the Deanna Hoak World Fantasy Awards Campaign, to "persuade those of you who’ve bought memberships this year, or to either of the last two World Fantasy Conventions, to use your nominations and, later, votes in the World Fantasy Awards to honour one particular person. "

I heartily endorse his efforts. Deanna copyedits most of the original manuscripts at Pyr. She's marvelous, and while her efforts largely go unnoticed by readers, she is the only copyeditor I have ever met whose praises are routinely sung by authors. This is a rare and fabulous thing.

Update: GalleyCat picks up the story.
