We have some excellent news to report about our good friend and past Guest of Honour, Jim Burns. The Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists has released the finalists for the annual Chesley Awards. Jim has been a finalist many times before in different categories. This year he has been honoured again, but in the very special category of Lifetime Achievement. The three finalists for that category this year are:
- Jim Burns
- Jean Giraud (“Moebius”)
- Charles Vess
That’s amazing company to be in. Congratulations, Jim, and good luck!
