Aurora Awards – Eligible Works by Manitobans

3 Mar

At least the ones I know about. I don’t know where Steven Erikson currently resides, but he grew up in Winnipeg so close enough. Apologies if I’ve missed you or someone you know who currently resides in or was a long time Manitoban, if you hit me up before the voting for nominees end I will add. I’ll link everything to the author’s blog. Seeing as how I’m L.T. Getty, no linkage on my two titles.

The Aurora Awards are a chance for all Canadians to vote on their choice of the best science fiction and fantasy produced in the year previous. I’m not saying to only support Manitobans – I’m saying it’s fun to see who’s local, because the lists by themselves are daunting. I enjoy supporting local authors, but I also love checking out authors I’ve never heard of before. At the very least, if you’re looking for quality, go to the website, and check out previous winners. I’m not saying you’ll love everything, but it’s a great opportunity to check out different authors, artists, publishers and more.
