George Mastras was nominated for a WGA Award by the Writers Guild of America along with the writing staff of AMC's Emmy Award Winning Dramatic Series "Breaking Bad" (created by screenwriter and executive producer Vince Gilligan), where George serves as a writer and executive story editor. Breaking Bad was nominated in the category of Best New Series for 2008. The critically acclaimed series is a darkly comedic drama about a struggling high school chemistry teacher who turns to cooking crystal meth when he discovers he has terminal lung cancer and needs to provide financial security for his handicapped son and pregrant wife. Winners will be announced in simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York on February 7.
George Mastras and his publisher, Scribner, have donated a box of new Fidali's Way books, signed by George, to Operation Warrior Library, an organization established by author Paul Malmont (The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril) and Audrey Malmont in conjunction with the United States Army. Operation Warrior Library provides our troops deployed overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq with recently published and best-selling works of fiction for their entertainment. If you are an author and interested in donating your books to our men and women in uniform overseas, or a reader who would like to encourage your favorite author to donate books, please check out http://paulmalmont.com/warrior-library/ for more information on this worthy organization.
