The 2021 World Fantasy Award finalists have been announced and this year Megan Lindholm aka Robin Hobb is to receive the Life Achievement Award, which is "presented annually to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding service to the fantasy field". The awards will be presented during the next World Fantasy Convention which will be held this November in Montreal, Quebec.

This is a well deserved award for an author who has been steadily releasing much loved fantastical stories for decades: from the first Ki & Vandien short story in 1979, through the 16-volume epic of the Realm of the Elderlings, to the most recent urban fantasy adventures of Celtsie. Between her two pen names, she has published 30 novels and 37 short stories of various lengths as well as contributed essays and forewords to other publications in the genre. Her works have been translated to over 25 languages, adapted into graphic novels, and inspired musicians such as Within Temptation.

Heartfelt congratulations Megan!
