David Gemmell Legend prize

Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski has won the David Gemmell Legend prize. The Guardian reported that the award, which "is intended to restore fantasy to its proper place in the literary pantheon," was given to the Polish author who "outsells Stephen King in Poland, but his fantasy novels, set in a world where the races of dwarves, elves, gnomes and humans are on the verge of war with each other, have only recently been translated into English." More than 10,000 fans from 75 countries voted for the prize.
