n case you weren’t following our Twitter feed on Friday (and why weren’t you?) you missed the winners of the International Association of Media Tie-In Writer’s annual Scribe Awards ceremony, held Friday night at Comic-Con in San Diego.

His work includes the Star Wars “Jedi Academy” books, three internationally bestselling X-Files novels, the Superman novels The Last Days of Krypton and Enemies & Allies, many novelizations (Sky Captain And The World of Tomorrow, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, etc.) and ten globally bestselling Dune novels he has co-authored with Brian Herbert.
But he wasn’t alone accepting honors on Friday. Cowboys & Aliens by Joan D. Vinge was the winner for Best Adaptation, Dungeons & Dragons — Forgotten Realms: Brimstone Angels by Erin M. Evans took the prize for Best Speculative Original Novel, Mike Hammer: Kiss Her Goodbye by Max Allan Collins & Mickey Spillane won for Best Original Novel, Thunderbirds: Extreme Hazard by Joan Marie Yerba was honored for Best Young Adult Novel, and Mike Hammer: Encore for Murder by Max Allan Collins & Mickey Spillane won the Best Audio award.
