Dragon Con is giving out their own awards, now, and what a dozy their first year was!
I’ve read/seen/played almost every one of these and they are really fantastic. Wright’s story is utterly brilliant.
Unlike the Nebula and the Hugo, this is an award where you can snag the winner and have a very enlightning, enjoyable read.
