The David Gemmell Legend Awards

It takes 3 clicks 
i) HERE
ii) beside the book you want to win
iii) at the bottom of that page on the 'vote' button


So, the David Gemmell Awards are the only awards I bother to mention. 

And I mention them because I approve of the public vote, and because I support them as a memorial to David Gemmell who is one of my favorite fantasy authors, was a very interesting man, and died too young.

Also...


                                                                      ... the prize is a big fuck-off axe. Even the finalists get little big fuck-off axes. How cool is that? Actually, scratch the '?' - it's cool.

So, King of Thorns is listed, but cunningly did not appear on the list until nearly a week after the big burst of launch publicity for this year's award. So we're playing it hardcore this year - who needs those early-bird votes? Right?

Now in case you're thinking 'Mark doesn't really need my support', last year in the Gemmell Morningstar Award...

So I clearly have a lot to learn about getting the vote out!

Also - there are some huge names on the Legend Award list which is open to everyone (the Morningstar Award is for debuts).

So - three clicks is all it takes:

i) HERE
ii) beside the book you want to win
iii) at the bottom of that page on the 'vote' button


THANK YOU

  1. Voted :)

    David Gemmell was an amazing author. I just read Legend for the first time last year and couldn't believe how good and modern it looked, having been written in a time where most books were really typical run-of-the-mill fantasy.

    Got it taken care of, sir. Don't let that unimportant career in scientific development that helps the human race prevent the really important thing, my entertainment, from continuing.
