2010 Scribe Nominees Announced

The nominees for this year’s Scribe Awards — given out by the IAMTW for the best tie-in novels of the previous year — have been announced. The awards will be given out at Comic-Con International this July. Congratulations to all the nominees, especially to my pals Nathan Long, Jeff Mariotte, and Aaron Rosenberg. I’m glad to see such great work getting its due recognition.

    1. @mforbeck My problem with the Scribe noms (and the IAMTW) is that they reinforce genre tie-in as something other than ordinary genre.

      1. @Paulskemp True. They do reinforce the existence of a tie-in ghetto, but the refusal of other genre awards to consider them created it.
