In addition to these Finalists, the Jury also announced that Robin Burks is our 2018 inductee to the Coger Hall of Fame for her three novel series (Zeus, Inc.; The Curse of Hekate; and Return of the Titans).
Please join us at MidSouthCon on Saturday March 10, 2018, for the Awards Banquet at which we will present the Winners and First Runners Up.
This is just a final reminder that the deadline for nominations for the 2018 Darrell Awards is Friday, December 1st, 2017.
Even if your work is eligible, it will only be considered if it is nominated by that day.
Please see the nomination form in multiple formats here: 2018 Nomination Forms.

As reported here previously, we operate the Darrell Awards on the basis of three deadlines. The first of those (the publication deadline) has now passed. It was Halloween 2017, a few days ago.
What this means is that if your work or the work that you want to nominate was not published October 31, 2017, it is not eligible for the 2018 Darrell Awards. Anything otherwise eligible that is published after the publication deadline can be considered for the 2019 Darrell Awards, but not for the 2018 Darrell Awards.
Our next deadline is the Nomination Deadline, which this year is extra early: DECEMBER 1, 2017.
This was changed from the previous nomination deadline because MidSouthCon (at which the Darrell Awards are presented) will be held earlier than usual in 2018, so we need to turn in our list of Finalists to them earlier than usual.
Please take note of the Nomination Deadline of December 1, 2017. If your work or the work you want to nominate is not nominated by that deadline, it will not be considered for the 2018 Darrell Awards.
You can find the 2018 Darrell Awards Nomination Form in multiple formats here: 2018 Nomination Form.
We look forward to receiving your nominations before December 1, 2017. Thank you !
