Membership in the CSFFA is only 10$ and gives you the right to download a small fortune’s worth of literature! I highly recommend getting involved. Besides the joy of all that summer reading, you get to vote for the winners of the award and thereby encourage our authors. –Cathy
Notice from the CSFFA regarding the Aurora Awards Ballot.
This email is being sent out to CSFFA account holders who have requested notices but currently do not have a paid CSFFA membership. If you have paid and your account does not reflect that please contact me ASAP and we will look into it. Please remember, once you have paid your account should automatically be updated. There should be no delay.
Aurora Awards: If you had not heard, the 2017 Aurora Awards ballot is out.
A notice and the ballot are on our website,
rds-Ballot.pdf . Congratulations to this year’s nominees.
There are two important things to take notice of. This year we have a special new category, Best of the Decade. This category is only given out once every ten years. Full details about this can be found on this year’s ballot. The other item is that due to a lack of eligible nominations in the Best Poem/Song category there will not be an award for it this year. To be eligible a work must receive at least 5 (five) nominations.
Voters’ Package: The package is open to all paid account holders. The first release of this year’s voters’ package is out. Please note the Best of the Decade and the Fan Organizational downloads are located above the other categories on the download page. They work the same as the others by clicking on them you will start the download process. Please be patient and wait for each download to complete before you start the next one.
Here is a link to what is in our package:
Once you have paid for this year’s membership can go to our “Voters Package Download” page from the “Join/Nominate/Vote” menu item or use this link:
We want to thank the nominees and their publishers for their generous donation of these works. Remember, these downloads are for CSFFA members and only CSFFA members. We request you do not share them with others. The voters’ package will be available to download until voting closes on September 2nd, 2017.
This year’s awards will be presented at Hal-Con in Halifax (www.hal-con.com) on the weekend of September 22-24, 2017.
