Gemmel Awards Announced
The winners of the Gemmell Awards were announced at the cutting edge Nineworlds Geekfest Heathrow, London. The Ravenheart Award for best cover art went to Sam Green for Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson. Not to be outdone, Sanderson himself won the Legend Award for the same book, and the the Morningstar Award for best debut went to The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Stavely.) A grand total of 36,759 votes were cast online, over two rounds. We wish Sanderson the best of luck with his shiny new award, which just happens to be a very large, and very real, fantasy-style axe, produced by Raven Armouries.
