David Gemmel Legend Award for Fantasy Winner

According to the David Gemmel Legend Award website: "the award will be given to a work written in the 'spirit' of the late, great David Gemmell, a true Master of Heroic Fantasy."

According to various sources, the award winner for the 2008 best fantasy novel is Andrzej Sapkowski for his Blood of Elves (in Polish, Krew elfów), although the award website does not yet reflect this, at the time of posting. This is the first award of this prize. Andrzej Sapkowski is a highly acclaimed Polish science fiction and fantasy writer. Blood of Elves is the first novel in the Witcher series. The English translation was published last year. Some of his novels have been translated into many languages, excepting English. Perhaps this will change, now.
