The Wertzone is up for an SFX award!

Which I have absolutely no chance whatsoever of winning! Still, gratifying to be noticed.


SFX Magazine ("Europe's Biggest-Selling SF Magazine") has opened its 2011 SF Blog Awards, with categories for Best Podcast, Best Forum, Best Celebrity Blog and so on. The Wertzone is up for the 'Best Book Blog' award (which the SFX team admit is a stretch, as the blog isn't exclusively about books), which is cool.

My competitors are Graeme's Fantasy Book Review (excellent SF review blog), Ansible (the most feted SF newsletter in the genre's history) and SF Signal (a vast review site with tons of news, articles and features, run by multiple contributors). Which means I have absolutely zero chance of winning.

The poll is a nice idea, especially since SFX is running it separately to their annual reader awards meaning that different kinds of online coverage can be acknowledged.

Still, congratulations on your nomination! It's nice to see that online media are being acknowledged as well, and being up against such a huge site as SF Signal... Wow.

Congratulations!

Congrats Adam! I voted for you as well. When I'm browsing the scifi/fantasy section at the bookstore, it is your website I have up on my iphone using as a reference to find my next read. Thanks for doing this.

Like I said, I'm willing to rugby tackle Langford and give you a clear shot at the thing. Not sure how to tackle SF Signal though...

Good luck Sir :o)
