Dragon Award Nominees!

Dragon_Logo_no_backgroundSmallThe final list of nominees for the Dragon Awards has been announced. I did not have any works that were eligible for an award (Nobility Among Us was published too early, Beyond the Mist was published 4 days too late for this year’s Hugo Awards, and was too short for the Dragon Awards, but will be eligible for next year’s Hugo Awards, for whatever that’s worth). Several of my friends, fellow SuperversiveSF contributors and one of our guests have been nominated, so my congratulations go out to them and all other nominees. Registration to vote is free and open to all, so this is truly an award for fans by fans, go over to http://awards.dragoncon.org/ to register and have your voice heard!
