Back in December I blogged about the David Gemmell Legend Award. I wanted to follow up on this and mention that the first finalists for the award have been announced:
Congratulations to all of the authors, especially Brandon Sanderson, whose work has appeared on Tor.com. To provide a quick refresher, this award was created in honor of departed author, David Gemmell, one of the true modern masters of heroic fantasy. Legend was his first published novel, and it remains in print twenty-five years later. I blogged about this book a bit in the original Gemmell post, and I’ll reiterate it is one of my favorite novels in the vein of sword & sorcery/heroic fantasy. The intent of the award is honor someone whose work is in the spirit of Gemmell’s.
The winner will be announced on June 19th. As has been the case from the beginning, voting is open to the public. You can cast your here.
