The Collapsing Empire a Finalist for the 2017 Goodreads Choice Award in Science Fiction — Vote This Week

Yes! That overly descriptive headline says it all! The Collapsing Empire is one of ten Science Fiction books to make it to the final round of the Good Reads Choice Awards in the science fiction category, and if you are so inclined, you may vote for it at the following link:

Alternately, if you head over there and fine another book amongst the finalists that you liked better, go ahead and vote for it. Seriously, vote for the one you like best. I mean, I’d love to win the Goodreads Choice Award — I’ve not won it before — but not by stuffing the ballot box. Vote for what you like! That’s the way it works!

Also you can vote in all the other categories as well, not just science fiction. Go wild with your voting, people.

In any event, it’s lovely to have Empire a finalist. Thanks, folks. I’m glad the book is finding readers, and they’re finding it enjoyable.

  1. You have my vote! I enjoyed the book immensely. As a reference librarian, I was quite pleased to see peer review as a significant plot point. You don’t catch that very often in science fiction.

  2. How has Artemis made it to the final round when it just came out this week? How am I supposed to vote if one of the books was just delivered to my Kindle yesterday? And it’s likely to be a book I might very well think is the best?
    They really should have a cutoff, like maybe nothing goes on the list unless its publication date is at least a month before voting starts. Otherwise it goes on next year’s nominations.

  3. Unfortunately I’ve only read one book on the ballot, James S. A. Corey’s Babylon’s Ashes so that’s what I voted for.

  4. I’m listening to it right now and I can’t believe I have to turn it off while I’m in the office! (In fact, I’m working my way around it right now.) Good luck!

  5. Gosh John, I love you like a favorite author whom I’ve pestered at small bookstore readings (well, one), but I have to say, you’ve got competition! I had just read one of Nnedi Okorafor’s Binti novellas and loved it, and, well, the Expanse series might as well be named “guaranteed not to disappoint”. Still, you got my sole vote because I’d be really very, very bummed if you got discouraged and didn’t get around to publishing more of the Collapsing Empire. I loved the first installment. Surely Wikipedia is wrong about the 2019 date for part 2? Didn’t they mean Christmas 2017?
