Michael Moorcock: 2008 SFWA Grandmaster!!

Huge congrats, Mike! Thrilled to see you become the 25th individual honored by the Science Fiction Writers of America with the Damon Knight Memorial Grandmaster Award. Full details here. SFWA's press release says that "the Grand Master represents SFWA's highest accolade and recognizes excellence for a lifetime of contributions to the genres of science fiction and fantasy." Based on that, I can't think of anyone who's done more to earn this. The honor will be bestowed to Mike at the Nebula Awards Ceremony in Austin, TX this April. You can bet I'll be there.
