2018 Dragon Awards

The biggest bummer about being put on the DL by the Doc and not being in Atlanta this weekend was missing the Dragon Awards.

In only its third year, the Dragons have become the crème de la crème of science fiction and fantasy awards. With these awards we get a very good read on what the real fans of SF/F like. So without further ado, here’s a list of the winners, who I voted for as well as (for the first time) who I originally nominated.

But first, a hearty congratulations to all of the winners as well as all of the nominees. All you should be as proud as hell. This was a great honor and accomplishment.
