The North Carolina Speculative Fiction Foundation is proud to announce the preliminary eligibility list of 109 titles for the 2017 Manly Wade Wellman Award for North Carolina Science Fiction and Fantasy.
The Manly Wade Wellman Award was founded in 2013 to recognize outstanding achievement in science fiction and fantasy novels written by North Carolina authors. The 2017 award, voted on by the combined membership of North Carolina science fiction and fantasy conventions (illogiCon, Stellarcon, ConCarolinas, ConTemporal, and ConGregate), covers novels published in 2016. Nominations will open after illogiCon in January ahead of a final voting round, with the finalists announced at ConCarolinas, and the award being presented at ConGregate in July.
The award is named for long-time North Carolina author Manly Wade Wellman with the permission of his estate.
