In the first stage we created a Longlist with the help of nine popular Fantasy Blogs (Bookworm BluesFantasy Book CriticFantasy Book ReviewFantasy-FactionGrimdark MagazineThe Fantasy HiveThe Fantasy InnThe Grim Tidings Podcast & The Weatherwax Report), three big Fantasy Imprints (GollanczHarper Voyager & Orbit), and two well-respected Agents (John Jarrold & Joshua Bilmes of JABberwocky Literary Agency), with each one of them 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.

In the second stage and with the public's help, the ten (10) books and five (5) Imprints with the highest number of votes in each category, made it to the Shortlist (revealed bellow), gaining the chance to compete for the title of the BEST, and the engraved sword that comes with it! 

Now, it's time to pick the winners. You can vote for your favorite books, authors and Imprints by Wednesday 31st October 2018. The Winners will be reveled a day later.

Best of luck to all contestants! 

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