2015 World Fantasy Award Winners Announced

Sunday, November 8th, 2015 | Posted by John ONeill

The Bone Clocks David Mitchell-smallUnlike last year, I was unable to attend the World Fantasy Convention, but from all reports it was just as exciting and rewarding as ever. They presented the World Fantasy Awards right on time at the end of the convention, and I’m happy to be able to share the winners with you.

For the last several years the coveted Life Achievement Award has been given to two recipients, and this year the judges continued that tradition, presenting the award to both Ramsey Campbell and Sheri S. Tepper for their outstanding service to the fantasy field.

The winners were selected by a panel of judges. This year’s winners of the World Fantasy Awards are:


The Bone Clocks, David Mitchell (Random House)


We Are All Completely Fine, Daryl Gregory (Tachyon)

Short Fiction

Do You Like to Look at Monsters?, Scott Nicolay (chapbook, Fedogan & Bremer)


Monstrous Affections, Kelly Link & Gavin J. Grant, ed. (Candlewick)

Monstrous Affections Kelly Link-smallCollection (tie)

Gifts for the One Who Comes After, Helen Marshall (ChiZine)

Congratulations to all the winners! And a very special shout out to Sandra Kasturi & Brett Alexander Savory at ChiZine Publications, the winners in the “Special Award — Professional” category. Sandra and Brett have been doing fabulous work for many years, and I showcased their wonderful catalog shortly after last year’s convention. Their award is richly deserved.

  1. Once again, awards and I don’t see eye-to-eye. The only winner I’ve read was Gifts for the One Who Comes After, and that was for the Aurora Awards.

  2. I know exactly what you mean. I’ve read shockingly few major award nominees over the past few years. I assume that’s my own fault, though… I spend a lot of time reading vintage fantasy these days.
