The 2017 Dragon Award winners have been announced and there were 15 very worthy winners. Sadly, I wasn’t one of them, but I still I am very honored to have been one of the finalists.
Congrats to James SA Corey for winning Best Sci-Fi Novel (my category) I can’t think of a better writer to lose to in any award. And thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for Escaping Infinity this year.
But one thought I want to touch on is how many people participated. 140,000 nominating votes were received and I am hearing it was either 80,000 or 8,000 people voted in the final round to determine the winners.
That is more than voted for the Nebula Awards and also more than voted for the Hugo Awards (3-4,000).
I said it before and the numbers bear this out: The Dragon Awards are the premier award in Sci-Fi/Fantasy.
Congratulations to the administrators of the Dragon Awards. In just two short years, you have ascended to the pinnacle and I feel you’ve only just got started. There may not be one of those incredible Dragon Awards sitting on my mantle (yet) but I am honored and humbled by the fact that I am, and will always be, a Dragon Award Finalist.
