I am very pleased to announce that the German translation of Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror - Onkel Montagues Schauergeschichten - has been nominated for the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis. The book is published by Bloomsbury in Germany.
David Roberts and I have been invited to the awards ceremony at the Frankfurt Book Fair in October. The winners are not announced until then. It will give me a chance to meet my editors over there and hopefully to thank my translator, Beatrice Howeg, who has obviously done a very good job.
