JURORS

Adri (@adrijjy) is co-editor of the Hugo Award winning fanzine Nerds of a Feather, Flock Together, and a semi-aquatic mammal currently living in the UK. She divides her time between reading, interacting with dogs, and working in international development. She can also be found at Strange Horizons.

Arina (@voyagerarina) is a book reviewer voyaging the worlds of speculative fiction at Queen’s Book Asylum. When not championing indie and inclusive SFF, she enjoys programming, (TT)RPGing, and overall spreading the gospel of her sarcastic, chaotic neutral nature.

C. (@themiddleshelf1) fell into scifi and fantasy at 13 and has never recovered since. They can be found blogging about diverse books, novellas and small press publications at http://www.themiddleshelf.org or on Twitter.

Debbie (@Owlphabetical) doesn’t read as much as she’d like to, despite buying them as if she did. She doesn’t have a blog but occasionally tweets things that are not Wordle scores.

Fabienne (@flschwizer) can usually be found reading too many books at the same time and yelling about them to anyone who will listen on Libri Draconis or Grimdark Magazine. A reformed historian, she now spends her days thinking about stories in the publishing industry. https://linktr.ee/libridraconis

Imyril (@imyril) reviews SFF at There’s Always Room For One More and is the resident spreadsheet dragon for Wyrd and Wonder, SciFiMonth and Subjective Chaos (yes, even chaos benefits from a little organisation, shh).

Kris Vyas-Myall (@hammard_1987) is the co-founder of Cloaked Creators and someone who reads way too much fiction and likes anything bizarre, the weirder the better. They blog around the internet at various places including Galactic Journey and Geek Syndicate.

L.A. Young (a.k.a. Aquavenatus, Misty306) is a book reviewer for both her personal blog and Fantasy-Faction. In addition to reading, you can find her gaming, running, cooking, gardening and writing (check out her other published works online!). You can follow her on any of her many social media pages: https://linktr.ee/AquaVenatus

Leigh (@leighowyn) never reads enough and always tries to read more. She is generally found hanging about Twitter, reading about science and SFF, when she could be reading more books. Loves a spreadsheet, and is overly fond of exclamation marks!

Lisa (@deargeekplace, she/her) is a lifelong book nerd from Scotland who has gotten this far on the powers of tea, cake and enthusiasm and doesn’t see any reason to stop now. She is a co-host of online events Wyrd and Wonder and SciFiMonth, doesn’t have pets but wishes she could, and always looks both ways before crossing the street. https://deargeekplace.com/

Matt aka @RunalongWomble is a book tempter – ahem, blogger – at Runalongtheshelves. The sweet voice on your shoulder telling you that it’s ok to get a new book. They are not a Moriarty, honest.

Robin Rose Graves (@spicymisorobin) is a science fiction writer who will never pass up the opportunity to talk about what she is reading. To appease this need to review and analyze everything she reads, Robin has founded her BookTube channel, The Book Wormhole.

Sia is a worldwalker who stops by Earth occasionally to grab snacks in between jumping into new SFF realms. She uses far too much caps-lock and believes everything is better with unicorns. https://everybookadoorway.com/

Sun (@suncani1) is a SFF reader who can be found getting overly excited about a bunch of things on Twitter and occasionally pausing to pass longer comment at Libri Draconis as a contributor.
