Comic Con and Thriller Fest Wrap-Ups with Award Winners

Yes, all the talk was about Comic Con in the media and you can read wrap-ups and coverage here and the best coverage here.  Also here is the link to the long list of Eisner Winners for the best work in comics and graphic novels.

Across the country in NYC there was also Thriller Fest this weekend. Click here for the official website and here for PW's article which lists all of the winners.  Congrats to Stephen King for winning best hardcover novel for 11/22/63; he is continuing to prove that no matter the genre, he is one of America's greatest storytellers. It is next up in my audio cue after I finish the massive but wonderful 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami.

And remember my advice on how to use awards lists as an RA suggestion tool. 

Now stop reading this and go ask someone if they need help finding something to read.
