An Eligibility Post for the 2018 Award Season

The list is short.

Witchmark is eligible for all sorts of 2018 awards, including the Nebula, the Hugo, and the Prix Aurora Award!

(Please note that I am not eligible for the Campbell award for Best New Writer. I published a qualifying work way back in 2003.)

Thank you to everyone who loved this book. I have included a few reviews from various internet locations, in case they’re useful:

Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review: “The final revelations are impossible to see coming and prove that Polk is a writer to watch for fans of clever, surprising period fantasy.”

Booklist, Starred Review: “Many disparate elements are expertly woven together to make this debut a crackler, with layers like a nesting doll and just as delightful to discover.”

The Best New Fantasy Novels, The New York Times: “thoroughly charming and deftly paced; I appreciated how well the world-building meshed with the plot’s development, like a map’s surface being revealed in time with one’s progress along it.”

The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels of 2018, Barnes and Noble: “This bewitching story of political maneuverings, dangerous magic, sweet romance, and bicycle chases is never less than addictive.”

Witchmark is available for sale at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, IndieBound, and Powell’s.
