Women of the Apocalypse had a great run in 2009 (still want to buy a copy?  Go here) and I’m hoping that continues into 2010.

The Aurora Awards are for the best Canadian SF/fantasy of the year  (as voted by the fans) – and we’re hoping to make it onto the short list (if you missed it, Robert J Sawyer – the dean of Canadian SF, gave us a great recommendation here)

Any Canadian citizen or permanent Canadian resident can nominate works for free. The deadline for nominations is February 5. The Aurora Awards will be awarded  at KeyCon in Winnipeg in May.

The ballot is located here: http://www.prix-aurora-awards.ca/English/AwardProcess/nominationVoting.htm
