We've closed submissions for the 2010 Kitschies. 58 books from 23 publishers are all in contention on the final list. We're going to spend the next two weeks selecting five for the short list, as well as picking the winner of the Golden Tentacle (for an author's first novel). The criteria remains the same: we're looking to reward those books that elevate the tone of geek culture. (More on what that means here).
