For the longest time, the Oscar Awards were the only recognized and coveted prize in the movie industry. But times change and along came the Golden Globe Awards. While the Oscars reflect the preferences of members of “The Academy,” the Golden Globes are chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. But there’s more. Now there’s the Viewers’ Choice Award, which includes actors and actresses as well as musicians and athletes—all chosen by viewers.
All that to say, the Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative Fiction (CSACS) is starting at the Readers’ Choice level. But time is running out. You have exactly one week to vote. The survey closes at midnight (Pacific time), November 30.
Be sure to make your voice heard—for the sake of the book you think most qualified and for the sake of the Christian speculative genre. The one requirement is that you must have read at least one of the nominated books (listed in alphabetical order below):
- A Dark Orange Farewell by George L. Duncan (OakTara Publishing)
All My Holy Mountain by L.B. Graham (P&R Press)
Cyndere’s Midnight by Jeffrey Overstreet (WaterBrook)
