Urban Fantasy Land Awards
Urban Fantasy Land just announced that voting is open for the 2008 Urban Fantasy Awards. The definition posted on the U.F. website's welcome page is:
"Urban fantasy looks like our modern world, except for the creatures. You might walk into a department store and find vampires, werewolves, faeries, demons, zombies, ghosts and ghouls, where you would find other shoppers or clerks. Or you might be the only one who sees them. Sometimes the creatures are openly part of the world, and sometimes they are hidden. There’s not always a romantic story, but when there is, it doesn’t end happily. [Happily Ever Afters are considered Paranormal Romance.]"
There is a YA category for the 2008 awards, so I was able to cast a vote based on informed opinion. Thanks to Charlotte for the heads up!
