Back from the Honeymoon, and DragonCon

Yes, I'm back from my honeymoon. And from The Dragon. I'll be posting pics soon enough. But I'm sure everyone wants to hear about the Dragon Awards....

Assuming they haven't already....

Best Science Fiction Novel went to. .... Artemis by Andy Weir.

...Are we surprised? Heck no. Even I figured this much out ahead of time.

Best Fantasy Novel (Including Paranormal).... Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson

Again, even I called this.

Best Young Adult / Middle Grade Novel ....Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.

Who? I knew at least two or three of the YA authors, and this isn't one of them. This one is a bit of left field.

Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy Novel ... A Call to Vengeance by David Weber, Timothy Zahn, and Thomas Pope

Again. Not shocked at all.

Best Alternate History Novel ... Uncharted by Kevin J. Anderson

I'm so happy to see that KJA has FINALLY gotten an award. He's only had about 60 bestselling books. And no, I couldn't call this one. It was a four way shootout.

Best Media Tie-In Novel ....Leia: Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray

[shrug] Whatever.

Best Horror Novel .... Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

Oh. Look. King won a horror award. I'm. So. Shocked.

... Is anyone?

Best Comic Book ....Mighty Thor by Jason Aaron and James Harren, Marvel Comics

Does anyone care?

Best Graphic Novel .... again, went to Brandon Sanderson’s White Sand Volume 1 by Brandon Sanderson, Rik Hoskin, and Julius M.  Gopez, Dynamite Entertainment

This was just too easy.

Best Science Fiction or Fantasy TV Series ...Game of Thrones, HBO

Eh. I voted for Lucifer.

Best Science Fiction or Fantasy Movie .... Black Panther directed by Ryan Coogler

Four Marvel films. I'm only surprised that they they didn't cancel each other out.

Best Science Fiction or Fantasy PC / Console Game ... Middle-earth: Shadow of War by Monolith Productions

Considering all of the loot box controversy, I was surprised at this one. But I liked the first game. I will buy this one.

Best Science Fiction or Fantasy Mobile Game .... Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery by Jam City

I wanted the Shadow of War Mobile game. But it won PC, so cool.

As for the rest, I neither know nor care.

Best Science Fiction or Fantasy Board Game
Red Dragon Inn 6: Villains by Slugfest Games

Best Science Fiction or Fantasy Miniatures / Collectible Card / Role-Playing Game
Magic: The Gathering Unstable by Wizards of the Coast

While you're here, if you haven't checked out my Dragon Award Nominated series, Love at First Bite.
