The bronze medal

The results for the 2013 Clive Staples Award were announced last night:

  1. Starflower by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
  2. Liberator by Bryan Davis
  3. The Throne of Bones by Vox Day
  4. Prophet by R. J. Larson
  5. Mortal by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee   

It’s probably not the best sign for a book when the awards committee doesn’t quite get the title right.  But its nomination, to say nothing of being selected as a finalist for the award, was still a nice surprise, given the fact that I didn’t think ATOB was even eligible for any awards.
