This is the hub/page for all the Nominees for the 2013/4 David Gemmell LEGEND Award.

We will be listing and linking to the Nominees as the information comes in from the various publishers worldwide...



The Legend Award:

The Legend Award is the highlight of the nights events at our Award Ceremony where the winner of the book voted best release of the year is presented with a unique, scale model of Snaga (the legendary axe of Druss the Legend) from Raven Armoury. The blades of the axe are laser-etched with the winner's name & novel.


Readers vote for their favourite novel from the longlist (voting for the first round closes on the 13th April, 23.59) nominated by publishers and the results of the first round of voting will be revealed this year Eastercon, Glasgow.

The Shortlist will then be open for voting until the end of April and the winner will be hailed the new champion of fantasy at our ceremony this year at the Magic Circle, London on the 13th June 2014.
