It’s That Time of Year!

As 2017 comes to an end, the various entertainment industries are in the throes of award season.  We’ve already had the Emmys, and now, in the first couple of months of 2018, a cavalcade of awards shows will be broadcast.  In January alone, we’ll see the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Grammys …none of which remotely interest me.

I’m more interested in awards recognizing the great books that have come out in the previous year. Examples include the Aurealis Award, the Edgars, the Hugos, the Nebulas, the Locus, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, the Newbery Medal, the Shirley Jackson Awards…. just to name a few. There are many more, but my favorite is undeniably the Bram Stoker Awards for obvious reasons.

Now is the time of year when authors, editors and publishers scramble to make the public aware of their releases from the previous twelve months. After all, most avid readers like myself can barely remember which books they read a couple of months ago, much less which ones they read way back in the early months of 2017. Even more difficult is recalling which titles were released in 2017 and which were reprints.

So, with that in mind, and considering that Bloodshot Books puts out original novels as well as reprints, here’s a list of our releases that qualify as eligible for consideration this year.  Hopefully you’ve read them and like them. If you haven’t, get on it!
