Thanks to those who nominated books for this year’s award and who participated in the practice survey.
Our readers’ choice survey to determine the 2009 winner of the Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative Fiction is ready.
To be eligible to vote, you must have read at least one of the nominated books and leave a valid email address (which will not be shared or revealed or used in anyway apart from any necessary verification of eligibility). You may vote once (with the option of including a second and third choice in case no clear winner is selected as a consensus first choice). Voting will run through the end of November.
As a reminder, the nominations, in alphabetical order, are listed on the Nominations page (titles will be listed randomly in the survey).

Please note, votes for a book as a second or third choice after it has been marked as a first choice will be disregarded.
Certainly fans and friends and family want to see their favorite authors do well. However, the only Readers’ Choice Award worth winning is one that truly reflects what book the majority of readers participating in this process identify as best.
Any endeavors to “stack the deck” turn this award into a popularity contest, not recognition of quality fiction. In short, they undermine the goals and purposes of the award. Please “play fair.”
