A lot of you have already been super helpful, but do be sure to write-in Star Realms: Rescue Run by Jon Del Arroz for Best First Novel. You can do so here:
I have a few other recommendations as well if you care to check out:
Best Novelette: “No Vacancy” By Bonnie Randall
Best Short Story: “Purytans” by Brad Torgersen
Best Publisher: Castalia House
Best Anthology: “God, Robot” by Anthony Marchetta
Sci-Fi/Fantasy and all that there are simply too many great books for me to choose. Go vote! I know this form is a bit heavy on work, but you can make a difference as awesome SF/F readers!
