World Fantasy Award

I like the World Fantasy Award. To me, it offers a good mix of well-known and established names in the genre as well as newcomers and books that may easily have been overlooked. I still have a lot of reading to do if I want to catch up on the winners but so far, it feels like an inclusive award that highlights diverse voices.

The books I’ve read are printed bold and if I’ve written a review, you can find it behind the link.
