2018 BookNest Fantasy Awards (Longlist)

Nine popular Fantasy Blogs (Bookworm Blues, Fantasy Book Critic, Fantasy Book Review, Fantasy-Faction, Grimdark Magazine, The Fantasy Hive, The Fantasy Inn, The Grim Tidings Podcast & The Weatherwax Report), three big Fantasy Imprints (Gollancz, Harper Voyager & Orbit), and two well-respected Agents (John JarroldJoshua Bilmes of JABberwocky Literary Agency) helped us create the Longlist for this year's BookNest Fantasy Awards by nominating their favorite books in each of the first three categories (Best Traditionally Published Novel, Best Self-Published Novel, and Best Debut Novel), published between October 1st 2017 and September 30th 2018. Now, with your help, we will begin the culling. Only the ten (10) books with the highest number of votes in each category will make it to the Shortlist, gaining the chance to compete for the title of the BEST, and the engraved sword that comes with it! Aside from the three Awards we hand out every year, this time around, we're introducing a brand new category. You can now vote for your favorite Fantasy Imprint! Who brings you the best Fantasy books every year? Whose logo adorns most of the spines on your bookshelf? You can now thank them for it! From the initial ten (10) contestants in the Longlist, only five (5) will make it to the Shortlist

You can vote for your favorite books, authors and Imprints by Sunday 14th October 2018. The Shortlist will be revealed a day later.

Best of luck to all contestants! 

 

This stage is now over. You can no longer vote.

The Shortlist will be revealed on October 15, 2018. 

 

Note: Some of you may get the error message "You've already voted in this poll today".

You can ignore it. Your vote has been counted in *without* an issue.

    I also got the "you already voted!" message after my first and only vote. I too hope it counted.

    I have voted once, but a message came up to say that I had already voted (but I hadn't).... I am hoping my one vote counts!
