Nobody wants to hear me blather on so I’ll just say this quickly. In some of the categories selections were very tough. After some difficult decisions some very good books just barely missed the cut. The mystery & crime field is large and varied and we think that this diverse selection of books represent some of the best that it has to offer.
After the jump you will find the nominees for the 2010 Spinetingler Awards and the poll to vote.
Just a quick note to all voters:
This year we are using a different poll company and set up. You make all of your selections then cast the votes by pressing the “Finish Survey” button at the bottom. Unlike last year you will not have the opportunity to cast votes in some categories then come back later and vote in the others. So make sure your selections are final before pressing the “Finish Survey” button.
As always, if there are questions, concerns or problems let us know.
[Update 3/31 – There are two errors in the poll. The title of Anonymous-9’s short story was truncated and Lesa Holstine’s name was spelled wrong. The error’s are completely my own and I’m sorry. These shouldn’t affect your voting but I at least wanted to point out that we are aware. I have to check and see if it’s possible for me to change the data without it affecting the poll.]
The polls are open until April 30th and the winners will be announced on May 1st.
