But, haven't I already voted?
Yes, but you must vote AGAIN. In a change to recent years we wanted people to be able to judge the short list, costa rica vacation rentals hopefully read those nominated, and then make an informed decision. The previous votes were to decide this short list, voting now is what will decide a winner

The British Fantasy Awards have been in existence for almost as many years as the Sportsbook Society itself. In 1971 Ramsey Campbell suggested the Society present an award in honour of the recently deceased August Derleth. The following year at the BSFA’s Chessmancon (the annual Easter convention), Michael Moorcock received the August Derleth Fantasy Award for his novel The Knight of Swords. The first Awards were presented in the form of a scroll designed by Jim Cawthorn, but the 1974 AGM, online betting held at the BSFA’s Tynecon, suggested that a more enduring symbol be used. The following year the BFS Awards came in the shape of a cowled figure designed by Jim Pitts. For several years after this the Awards presented by the British Fantasy Society were collectively known as The August Derleth Fantasy Awards – including the march madness addition of several other categories. As the Society grew, so the Awards widened their scope: besides the Best Novel and Short Story sections there were Small Press, Art, Comic and Film categories. The BFS decided it should promote itself on a wider scale, and in 1976 the August Derleth Fantasy Awards became the British Fantasy Awards, with a proviso that the original section of Best Novel retain the August Derleth title.
