The Dragon Awards are up and ready to be voted on. I THINK you can go vote for them here. But I think it's actually a personalized link sent in my email, so that may only be good for me and what I voted for.
Otherwise, if you haven't gotten an email with a ballot yet, you might have to register here again.
But let's see what's up for voting, shall we?
1. Best Science Fiction Novel
Raising Caine by Charles E. GannonOh well....Five out of six isn't bad. Obviously, the ridiculously highlighted is what I voted for.
Somewhither: A Tale of the Unwitheriing Realm by John C. WrightAgent of the Imperium by Marc Miller
Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson
The Life Engineered by J-F Dubeau
Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie
2. Best Fantasy Novel (Including Paranormal)
The Cinder Spires: The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim ButcherFive novels? Only five novels? Did we miss one? What happened in fantasy? Maybe they required a minimum limit of votes before they give you a nomination.s Otherwise I would be there too.
Asteroid Made of Dragons by G. Derek Adams
Grave Measures by R.R. Virdi
Son of the Black Sword by Larry Correia
Changeling’s Island by Dave Freer
And, Larry, next year. I really want this one to go to Butcher.
3. Best Young Adult / Middle Grade Novel
Six of Crows by Leigh BardugoEight nominees? Eight? Yikes. Makes you wonder
Changeling’s Island by Dave Freer
Updraft by Fran Wilde
Calamity by Brandon Sanderson
Trix and the Faerie Queen by Alethea Kontis
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Shepherd's Crown by Terry Pratchett
Steeplejack by A.J. Hartley
I have no horse in this race ... especially since I'm not here either ... Sigh.
I'd usually knee-jerk and say Pratchett, but I want Dave Freer to get something. He's awesome.
And no, I don't really know the others.
4. Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy Novel
Blood in the Water by Taylor AndersonI told you Weber would take this one. That's my bet. Why? Because Scalzi has never been at DragonCon. Also, Scalzi sucks. And because Weber has been doing military SF longer than the current graduating class of 2016 have been ALIVE.
Allies and Enemies: Fallen by Amy J. Murphy
The Price of Valor by Django Wexler
The End of All Things by John Scalzi

5. Best Alternate History Novel
1635: A Parcel of Rogues by Eric Flint & Andrew DennisOh look, Turtledove. However could I have guessed he'd be on this list?
Germanica by Robert Conroy
League of Dragons by Naomi Novik
Deadlands: Ghostwalkers by Jonathan Maberry
Bombs Away: The Hot War by Harry Turtledove
1636: The Cardinal Virtues by Eric Flint & Walter H. Hunt
Also, I think the 1635 and 1636 books will cancel each other out, or they'll have to coordinate before they decide.
6. Best Apocalyptic Novel
Ctrl Alt Revolt! by Nick ColeMarina's book was awesome and perfect. So there. Nick Cole, however, has a surprisingly wide fan base.
A Time to Die by Mark Wandrey
Dark Age by Felix O. Hartmann

The Desert and the Blade by S.M. Stirling
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
Also ... how is Ringo not here? Anywhere?

Now, again, this link came with my email, and I've had some people get to the survey with it and some have not.
So let's risk it and try it anyway.
And, again, if you can't use the link, go and register with the Dragon Awards here.
So, I will now suggest to you that you go out and purchase the DRAGON AWARD NOMINATED NOVEL FOR BEST HORROR, HONOR AT STAKE!
Well, this has been an interesting day.
Now, if you will all pardon me, I think I may have to make arrangements to go to Atlanta. With about five minutes worth of notice.
