The 2018 Darrell Awards Jury held a meeting tonight and the major piece of business was deciding to seek nominations directly from a broad range of publishers.
Jury Chairperson Kitty Jungkind will contact both national and regional publishers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror novels and novellas to seek nominations of eligible works either written by Mid-South authors or with scenes set in the Mid-South.
Jury Vice-Chair Sylvia Cox will contact publishers of magazines and short stories.
As always, the Jury is happy to accept nominations from the public, as well as the authors, publishers, and friends of the authors.
The deadline for nominations is now set as December 1, 2017 (one month earlier than in previous years).
