The David Gemmell Awards are nearing, and I thought it would be nice to spread the word. These awards are meant to increase awareness of fantasy literature. This is a highly honored award not only for authors, but artists and illustrators as well.  A few of my favorite authors have been nominated, so it’s more than a pleasure for me to get as many voters to the site as possible. Voting closes September 30th, so get to clicking! Below are the nominees, (list courtesy of the David Gemmell Award website).
