SFWA seeks nominees for Andre Norton Award

Janni Lee Simner, a juror for last year's inaugural Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy, reports that this year's jury is now looking for appropriate novels first published in 2006 to consider for the next award ballot.

Jurors choose the books to appear on the ballot, which are
then voted on by the Science Fiction Writers of America. "To have your book considered," she writes, "all you have to do is have your publisher (or yourself) send a copy to this year's jurors."

To get that list of names and addresses, go to the SFWA's webpage for the Norton Award and look for the jury chairperson's email address for inquiries.

The winner of the first Andre Norton Award was Holly Black, for Valiant: A Modern Tale of Faerie. (Personal website in need of updating here.)
