Dragon Award 2017 Recommendations

Yes, I know that the eligibility ends at the end of this month. I'm fairly confident in my recommendations at this time, and will now post what I'm listing.

SF Novel: The Secret Kings by Brian Niemeier

Fantasy Novel: A Sea of Skulls by Vox Day

YA Novel: Swan Knight's Son by John C. Wright

Alt History Novel: Crazy Horses by David J. West(yes, I'm counting weird west as alt history.)

Apocalyptic Novel: A Place Outside the Wild by Daniel Humphreys

Horror Novel: Live and Let Bite by Declan Finn

Comic Book: Green Valley, vol. 1, from Image

Graphic Novel: Kingsway West by Greg Pak, Dark Horse

TV show: I quit caring during Lent.

Movie: Wonder Woman. Went and saw it after seeing Rawle's review of it.

PC/Mobile Game: no clue, not really my scene

Boardgame: Scythe from Stonemaier Games(Star Trek Ascendancy would get it if expansions had been released, but it's only 3 player right now.)

Minis/RPG/CCG: I don't know why they have it like this. It's a bad model, and Magic will get at least nominated every year, because of the sets and rotation. Also, the John Carter game hasn't come out, and the Fallout minis game only just was announced.

Yes, some categories had lots of great books. We don't yet have an embarrassment of riches on the indie/small press side, but we are getting to better stuff than the tradpub guys.

When you play Social Justice, the world loses.


  1. Just heard from a friend that you might need some prayers. Praying for you.

  2. For Alt History, I humbly recommend my own:
