World Fantasy Convention – Life Achievement Award for TANITH LEE

Science fiction and fantasy writer TANITH LEE, author of 91 books, was presented with a richly deserved LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD at the World Fantasy Convention 2013 in Brighton.

IMGA0041

Author of such classics as:

THE BIRTHGRAVE        The Birthgrave

EAST OF MIDNIGHT    East of Midnight

THE UNICORN TRILOGY    Gold Unicorn

NIGHT’S MASTER     Night's Master

THE SILVER METAL LOVER   Silver Metal Lover

THE SILVER METAL LOVER:

Tanith Lee is one of the most thought-provoking and imaginative authors of our time. In this unforgettably poignant novel, Lee has created a classic tale–a beautiful, tragic, erotic, and ultimately triumphant love story of the future.

Published in 1999, Silver Metal Lover was optioned by a film company. As is the way of such things, the film was not made.

BUT, a new option has been brokered in very recent months – so we may yet see one of Britain’s most imaginative writers come to the big screen.
