Sapkowski Wins the Gemmell Award

Via Danie Ware and Twitter, the word is that Andrzej Sapkowski as won the David Gemmell Legend Award for Blood of Elves (US, UK, Canada, Indiebound). Congrats! While I was pulling for Abercrombie to get the win for Last Argument of Kings (US, UK, Canada, Indiebound, my review), I did predict the strong possibility of a Polish revolution on this one.

it's an excellent book although I preferred the last wish.

YAY!!!

Although I think the books get better later on and the series is best as a whole, this is a very good book and it deserves all the awards it gets.

As for Poles making it happen - you're probably right but I wander what the turnout was. How many had to vote to outvote fans of the other more famous writers.
