The deadline is quickly approaching for Vogel Award vote nominations, and this week is your last chance to contribute. In February, I was thrilled to announce that our very own Woelf Dietrich was nominated and placed on the long list for his story “Babylon’s Song,” which appears in Interspecies. But to get short-listed for the final ballot, we need the help of readers.
The Sir Julius Vogel Award is one of New Zealand’s most recognized honors for speculative fiction. Dietrich notes on his blog that the award ceremony and final “voting takes place at LexiCon, the 38th New Zealand National Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention (NatCon), which will be held from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th June 2017 (Queen’s Birthday Weekend).”
We hope you’ll consider putting in a nomination vote for Woelf. It only takes 2 – 3 minutes. The deadline is at 3:00 AM EST March 31st, 2017, and 8:00 PM March 31st NZST (for New Zealanders), just three days from now depending on your timezone.
