For those unaware of the DGLA, these are the prizes for epic fantasy, decided (mostly) by public vote. (The 'mostly' is because the books are submitted by publishers and 'cleared' by the DGLA admins, which leads to a bit of unavoidable weirdness. But we're past that now.) And the People Have Spoken!
We've just come out of two months-ish of voting, and, across the DGLA's three categories, over 17,000 votes were cast. The finalists will be announced soon, but for various reasons - see below - I wanted to get this out first.
[I will update this post later with the shortlists and links to all the reviews, for easy reference.]
I'll be reviewing the ten books on the Legend and Morningstar lists between now and (hopefully) the voting deadline. It is a ton of fun, and I hope you join in.
Details on how I'll be approaching this most epic and fantastic of epic fantasy reading challenges below.
