World Fantasy Award Liftetime Achievement Awards

Locus Online has the news that the winners of this year's Lifetime Achievement World Fantasy Awards have been announced early, in a one-time change in procedure.

The winners are Diana Wynne Jones, who will be unable to attend the convention, and Betty Ballantine, who will be there.

Both women are very deserving of the award; I'm slightly surprised that Betty Ballantine hadn't gotten it before now. And I'm particularly glad to see Diana Wynne Jones get this honor; she was on my personal short-list last year when I was a judge.
