W.P. Kinsella's Lifetime Achievement

The author who created my Silas Ermineskin's namesake won a George Woodcock Lifetime Achievement award last night.

Read about it HERE.

(My Silas Ermineskin ... as if he needs an introduction around here.)

[W.P.'s Silas and other characters...]

I'm sure if it's completely obvious, but I am a devoted reader of his work. I first read The Fencepost Chronicles when I was very young, and have read and enjoyed each and every one of W.P. Kinsella's books since.

I love his writing advice: "Get to the point and stop when you are done."

Congratulations -- enormously deserved!
