the first annual apocrypha blue wall awards

Welcome to the nomination process for the First Annual apocrypha Blue Wall Awards! Listed below are the selections apocrypha has published over our first year as an online 'zine. ONLY THESE STORIES ARE VALID FOR THIS YEAR'S NOMINATIONS. If it ain't here, it ain't up until NEXT year's nominations. Each title is linked to the original story, so if you want to re-read the entry, or read it for the first time, go right ahead! Then, when you're ready, send an email to us here at apocrypha and tell us, in this format:

1) Your top 3 fiction selections (list author AND title)
2) Your top 3 challenge selections (list author AND title)
3) Your top single non-fiction selection (list subject AND title)

Our next issue will list the top nominees, as you've chosen them, and you'll have the chance to vote for the prize-winners! One vote per email address, and you must have voted by August 15, 1998 at midnight for us to consider your entry. Again, these are only the primaries -- Adam would be worried, but you don't have to be. If you don't get your nomination in, you can always vote for the top selections next month!

Please send us the information as requested; incomplete nominations WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

Winners will be announced in our Winter issue!

Thanks for voting, and thanks for reading!
