2020 Stabby Awards
« on: January 07, 2021, 10:59:18 PM »
The r/Fantasy "Stabby" awards for 2020 have been announced, which came to my attention partly because my agent-sib AK Larkwood has won for best debut. (Which I'm thrilled about, because it's a corker of a book that I keep trying to foist on people!) Full list of winners is here, but some highlights include:

Best Novel The Trouble With Peace by Joe Abercrombie
Best Self Published / Independent Novel The Torch that Ignites the Stars by Andrew Rowe
Best Debut Novel The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood
Best Novella The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo
Best Game Hades by Supergiant Games
Best TV/Movie The Mandalorian

(I loved that Nghi Vo novella as well! In fact, given the high quality of the other winners, I'm tempted to try looking up that indie winner...)

I've added it to my list of books to buy in 21 (paperback out in February).
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

I'm "She Who Reigns Over Us All In Crimson Cheer", according to Peat!
