British Fantasy Awards Best Novel

. . . went to our very own Sam Stone. The first time a woman has won this award for 31 years. There was some controversy following the awards that the BFS winners have become horror rather than fantasy. Those who have read Demon Dance (the winning novel) will agree it’s a (not-so-typical) heroic quest – certainly not horror romance. The hero(ine) starts her journey in a symbolic Garden of Eden where she meets the “the creator”. Okay, so she’s a vampire, and trying to get back to her lover, but the story itself journals her adventures through time and the challenges she faces in trying to get back to him – her quest. Demon Dance IS fantasy.
