Asher and Walsh Recognized by WFC

Michael Swanwick’s Flogging Babel posted a photo of World Fantasy Award winners Ellen Asher and Michael Walsh and these very nice compliments:

Two of those good people are shown above: Michael Walsh, of Old Earth Books, for Old Earth Books and especially for publishing Howard Waldrop, and Ellen Asher, who received a lifetime achievement award for her career at the Science Fiction Book Club. They are Heroes of Literature, the both of them.

Walsh copied the news to me in an e-mail titled “What happens to past worldcon chairs…” I hope Christian McGuire is reading — he’s always happy to hear we can go back to being useful members of society.
