Kay on Art & Entertainment

Guy Gavriel Kay's very excellent toastmaster speech from this year's World Fantasy Award ceremony contained considerable food for thought, particularly about the tension between art and entertainment. I'd hoped that a transcript of it might become available, and now Kay has gone and provided the full text of the speech online. I recommend checking it out, and in particular the section in the middle about Robert Jordan, which I really took to heart. (And the long fairy tale that namechecks all the nominees is a lot of fun, too.)
