Tonight saw the prizegiving ceremony for the Gemmell Awards, with prestigious prizes given to the very best in fantasy fiction over the last year. In the fabulous surroundings of London's prestigious Magic Circle, the three awards were presented by some of the genre's most acclaimed names.

We're very sad to pass on the news that Deborah Miller, author and principal founder of the David Gemmell Awards For Fantasy, passed away on Monday. Deborah had been battling breast cancer for some years, and went into remission several times. The condition recently surfaced again, and she fought it with her usual resolve, but treatment proved ineffective. She passed peacefully, with her husband, Bill, at her side. Deborah faced her illness with courage and good humour.
Her fiction and the Gemmell Awards will stand as permanent memorials to an exceptional person, an indomitable spirit and a good friend.
