I’m pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the second (sort of) annual(ish) Steampunk.com awards. Okay, last year we only did “Book of the Year” and we did it in December instead of January, but think of it as a trial run. This year is the real deal.

We have 11 categories, ranging from novel to video to game. You can make one nomination per category, so choose wisely. All nominations must be in by the end of the day on Friday, January 20, 2012. The top 5 nominees will make the final ballot with voting starting on the 23rd.

You can leave comments below if you want, but only nominations entered into the form will count. Please don’t try to stuff the ballot box. Cheating is not cool. Thanks.
