Centre: The Golden Stabby, for best book (Red Sister) and best contributing pro author on r/fantasy.
My Golden Stabby arrived today, and it's a BIGGY!
Huge thanks to Elquesogrande, founder of r/fantasy, for sending this beast to me at vast postage expense.
The "golden" element derives from my decision, following in the magnanimous footsteps of Brandon Sanderson, to recuse myself from the Stabby Awards for a few years.
Anyway, it's a heavy chunk of metal, and I'm very grateful to the good folk of r/fantasy for voting Red Sister their favourite book of 2017. I shall wear it with pride!
And if we get burgled again then the criminal has even more to worry about! Same goes for zombie apocalypse.
Thanks again to all those voters out there who have made me an award-wielding author!
