I’ve been meaning to get to this much earlier but it seems like every time I get ready to start in on it about five or six fires spring up that require my attention. Well, all the blazes are out so it is time for me to hand out my recommendations for the upcoming Dragon Awards.
The Dragons, for those not in the know, are in their second year of existence. Connected to Dragon Con in Atlanta, one of the largest attended sci-fi/fantasy conventions anywhere (it crushes WorldCon – the old standard for cons much like the Dragon Award is crushing the dying Hugo Award) short of San Diego’s ComicCon of course.
The best part of the Dragon Award is that it is voted on by the fans of sci-fi/fantasy. Even better, you don’t have to buy a membership. Yes, it is absolutely free to nominate and, later on, vote for the finalists.
Here’s the link to nominate your favorites in any category you want (you don’t have to nominate in all of them unless you want to) and don’t forget to check the box so you will be e-mailed the link to vote on the finalists later this summer:
Here’s my nominations:
Best Science Fiction: Escaping Infinity by Richard Paolinelli
Ok, it shameless but I think this is definitely deserving of a nomination.
Best Fantasy: Live and Let Bite by Declan Finn
I know Declan probably feels this is more suited to Horror, but if I nominate his latest addition to his vampire franchise here, it allows me to nominate another worthy work in the Horror category.
Best Young Adult: Rachel and the Many Splendored Dreamland by L. Jagi Lamplighter.
While I am not a reader of Young Adult, I have read enough of this one to know
