Book News

Online voting for the 2016 Gemmell Awards has opened. The fantasy novel awards are voted for by the general public and are named after the fantasy author David Gemmell, who died in 2006.

The awards are split into three categories:  The David Gemmell Legend Award for Best Fantasy Novel, the Morningstar Award for Best Fantasy Newcomer and the Ravenheart Award for Best Fantasy Cover Art. The awards are well known for the unusual shape of the prizes; The Legend Award is an actual axe, which is a scale model of Snaga, the axe wielded by Gemmell’s iconic hero Druss. The other two awards are statues inspired by Gemmell’s works.

The awards will be announced at 8pm on Saturday, September 24th, 2016 at Fantasycon by The Sea, Scarborough.

STARBURST would like to wish the best of luck to all of those nominated. Those wishing to vote can do so by going to www.gemmellawards.com.
