Awards, Nominations, Harper Voyager US, and You!


So earlier this year, the Harper Voyager team talked about our year in review, specifically, all the great books we did in 2015. You can read it, here.

With award nomination season upon us, we felt it might be helpful to clarify that list a bit, just so you know what might be eligible for what: in other words, what original works did we publish in 2015, and what formats do they fall under.

This may seem a bit crass—letting you know what is eligible for awards—because we’re essentially saying: Nominate these books and stories! And, in a way, we are…and it is.

But the fact is, with so many great things being published, it’s easy to forget a book you loved in the early part of last year when you’re considering something for this year, and so we figure it just helps our authors—and you—when you’re filling out any and all ballots you might be looking at.

To be clear, too: we are not endorsing or advocating any of our books over another—we think they are all award-worthy. Nor do we necessarily say Harper Voyager titles are better than other publishers’ titles.

Necessarily say. :p

Seriously, though, we just want to provide voters with a comprehensive list of what is eligible from our imprint, in hopes they get the recognition they deserve. And, also, because it’s a great reminder of all the wonderful books you might not have read yet!

Note: some of these on this list are from our authors, but not published by HV—in case you were wondering!
