The Stabbies - reddit r/fantasy awards 2018

The Stabbies are the voted award handed out each year by r/fantasy in many categories, including Best Book, Best Debut, and Best Self-Published Book. 

Check out the official results and the nominations

Unfortunately I can't bring you the top 5 in each category this year as the Stabbies have become a victim of their success and voting was subject to some manipulation this year. To avoid acrimony the organisers are withholding the rankings.

I recused myself from the contest this year since I won the Golden Stabby last year. Though I did contribute to Petros Triantafyllou's The Art of War which won a Stabby for Best Anthology!

Reddit r/fantasy has 482,000 members (up from 243,000 last year, 145,000 the year before, 85,000 the year before and 69,000 the year before that) and is the most active fantasy forum on the internet. Well worth checking out - though the interface is a steep learning curve at first.
