Michael Moorcock SFWA Grand Master 2008

I’ve seen over at the Asimov’s forum that Michael Moorcock is to be made a Gand Master by Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. This makes him the third British Grand Master after Arthur C Clarke and Brian Aldiss.

Last years Grand Master nominations of James Gunn caused some controversy as in relation to the full list of Grand Masters his name seemed a little incongruous, being little known even to most SF readers. Personally I’m glad to see a return to honoring the writers who have really become legendary within the genre.
