Link: Nnedi Okorafor’s Who Fears Death wins the World Fantasy Award

In a right sidebar spot, there’s a new “World Fantasy Award Winner” spot in light of the just-announced World Fantasy Awards. The winner in the novel category is… Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor: 

And, like all of this year’s nominees, there’s an audiobook. (We live in wonderful times, really.) Who Fears Death is listed with a sale price of $8.74 $12.24, and the Audible.com front page text is: “Just awarded the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel at the World Fantasy convention, Nnedi Okorafor’s gripping story is set in post-nuclear Africa. The young sorceress Onyesonwu, whose name means Who Fears Death, must fulfill her magical destiny to end the genocide of her people.” Narrated by Anne Flosnik and released by Brilliance Audio, I posted my (5-star) review on Audible.com some time ago, and in longer form there’s an excellent review of the audiobook over at Guilded Earlobe.

While I’m at it, here are the other finalists/nominees for the World Fantasy Award:

Update: The site-wide Halloween sale prices just went away. Hence the strikethroughs above.
