The David Gemmell Awards 2010: voting open

After last year's successful inaugural ceremony, the Gemmell Awards are back for a second year. There has been some expansion of the voting and there are now three categories. Joining the Legend Award for Best Fantasy Novel there is also the Ravenheart Award for Best Book Cover/Artist and the Morningstar Award for Best Fantasy Newcomer.

To vote, go to this address and click on 'Legend', 'Ravenheart' or 'Morningstar' to access the voting buttons. Note that as of this time of posting the 'Ravenheart' voting has not started, but the other two have.

My choices for this year were for Joe Abercrombie's Best Served Cold for the Legend and Pierre Pevel's The Cardinal's Blades for the Morningstar (a very competitive field this year). My selection for the Ravenheart when the voting opens will be Stephan Martiniere for his gorgeous cover to Chris Wooding's Retribution Falls.
