Dragon Awards

I'm sure that the few that read this little and infrequent blog already know that DragonCon has decided to create their own awards for SF and Fantasy content. I say content because this covers several categories of novels(excellent news), comics/graphic novels, and a few game categories. Please note a work is only eligible for one category, not multiples, in accordance with Dragon Award Rules.  Due to the fact that this Very Prestigious Award has not been ruined, and is free to nominate and vote, here are my personal nominations:

Best SF Novel: Somewhither by John C. Wright

Best Fantasy Novel: Son of the Black Sword by Larry Correia

Best YA Novel: Calamity by Brandon Sanderson

Best Military SF/Fantasy Novel: Warship by Joshua Dalzelle

Best Alternate History Novel: A Long Time Until Now, by Michael Z. Williamson

Best Apocalyptic Novel: Ctrl Alt Revolt! by Nick Cole
Update: My bad. I just realize Ctrl Alt Revolt misses eligibility by 6 days. Apologies to Mr. Cole. I recommend his The End of the World as We Knew It in it's stead.

Best Horror Novel: Honor at Stake by Declan Finn

Best Comic Book: The Black Hood #1-#5, 2/25/15-8/26/15

Best Graphic Novel: Invisible Republic,  by Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Bechko, August 26, 2015

Best Episode in a series(it's really a series as a whole nom.): The Flash

Best SF/F Movie: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Best SF/F PC/Console Game: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt by CD Projekt RED

Best Mobile Game: no recommendation, as I don't play them currently

Best SF/F Board Game: Talon by GMT Games

Best SF/F Minis/CCG/RPG: Mouse Guard 2nd edition by Archaia Studios Press

These are of course only my opinions, and not suggestions that anyone do likewise or otherwise.

When you play Social Justice, the world loses.
