Coode Street nominated!

To say that I’m both gobsmacked and delighted to report that The Coode Street Podcast has been nominated for the BSFA Award for Best Non-Fiction (full shortlist here) hardly begins to touch on my reaction.

Gary and I started recording the podcast very much on the spur of the moment, and have kept it very simple and straightforward which in turn helps to keep it fun. And it is fun. Getting nominated for an award for it is a little like being nominated for going on holidays, really.

I’ve not had the chance to talk to Gary about the nomination, but no doubt we will do so this weekend. Until then, my thanks (and I’m very sure Gary’s too) to the BSFA and my congratulations to our fellow nominees, Paul, Abigail, Adam and Francis.  I wish I could be at Eastercon to buy you all a drink to celebrate!

  1. Congratulations to you both! It was actually seeing this nomination earlier today that reminded me that I hadn’t listened yet. My daughter and I just listened to the latest two podcasts and are suitably impressed. Very fun, conversational banter with a good deal of intelligent insight into the industry while also adding (much to my chagrin) books to the list of things I must buy. I wish you well.

  2. Many thanks for the congratulations. I’m delighted and more than a little bemused. I’m glad people seem to be enjoying the podcast.

  3. Well deserved Jonathan and Gary!

    Listening to you guys has an almost “fly on the wall” pleasure to it, as though you’re letting us listen in to a previously private (and long running) conversation.

    Looking forward to 2011!

  4. Congratulations!

    I’ve been thoroughly enjoying your conversations. It’s basically two insiders and fans who clearly love the genre and who provide entertaining and informative glimpses of different aspects of the industry.

  5. Should have added my thanks for all these congrats much earlier, but am still a bit stunned!
