Camy Posted July 16, 2014 Report Share Posted July 16, 2014 This years World Fantasy convention is taking place in London. During the convention the presentation of the Hugos takes place, the equivalent of the oscars for fantasy writers. This year 'The Wheel of Time', written by Robert Jordan and completed by Brandon Sanderson, is up for best novel. Including the prequel it's a massive fourteen book saga that, like Lord of the Rings, every fantasy reader should have a go at. If you join loncon3 as a supporter, which costs £25, you not only get to vote, but you get the voters packet. The voters packet includes the ebook version of the entire Wheel of Time as well as most of the other novels, novellas, short stories, etc. Also, this year, they are awarding retro Hugos for 1939 (a year in which, not surprisingly, Hugos didn't get awarded). I believe the voters packet includes all those novels, etc, too. So, for £25 you get to vote and get a lot of ebooks. Here are the finalists for 2014, and for 1939. Go Rand! Quote Link to comment
