Happy New Year — it’s time to nominate your favorite science fiction and fantasy writing for the 2018 Planetary Awards.

We’re again doing only two categories:

If you’re a blogger, podcaster, or youtuber, the nomination process is easy:

  1. State your nominations on your site/cast/channel, mentioning that they are for the Planetary Awards
  2. Leave a comment on this post, or on the Planetary Defense Command reblog, with a link to your nominations

Good luck to all of 2018’s authors.  Don’t forget to spread the word to other reviewers!
