The Darrell Awards were begun in 1996, when blogging was still unheard of in this area. Our presence on the web has been via a mostly-static site with many pages that contain a bunch of text.
Over the years, we have considered ways to make the info we share with the world more interesting – or at least to make it more visually appealing. So, now we are blogging.
Over the next several weeks, various content currently on the Darrell Awards website will be moved here. Along the way, most of it will be rewritten & updated with links galore and other goodies.
This blog will also make it easier for our esteemed Jury Chairperson, Barbara Gatewood, to add her voice to what is posted about the Darrell Awards.
So, thank you for visiting, please add us to your RSS feeds, subscribe or whatever, & post your comments & feedback.
As always, spam will be removed & get you blocked from posting anything else.
Please do note that we expect those posting anything here to keep a civil tongue, meaning any personal insults or disgusting comments will be deleted.
Also, this blog is not political — it is about Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Supporting Literacy, Midsouth authors who write in these genres and the Midsouth locations that appear in them. Please keep any comments or posts on-topic.
— Tim Gatewood, Founder of the Darrell Awards
