More Dragon Awards News

Locus Magazine, Science Fiction FantasyAs reported earlier this week, Alison Littlewood and John Scalzi requested their works be removed from the Dragon Awards ballot, and the awards administrators declined to do so.

N.K. Jemisin then requested that her book The Obelisk Gate (Orbit) be removed from the Best Apocalyptic Novel category, citing concerns about the voting process, among other issues.

President Pat Henry reconsidered his decision to refuse the withdrawals, and chose to honor Littlewood’s request after all, as well as Jemisin’s.

Meanwhile, Scalzi reconsidered his decision after discussing his issues with the award administrators, and his book The Collapsing Empire will remain on the ballot.

Those who voted for Littlewood’s and Jemisin’s books will receive new ballots to fill out. No new works will be added to the ballot.

The revised ballot is below. Voting is being extended by two days, to midnight on September 1, 2017. For more, or to vote, visit the Dragon Award site.
