Junkies, let's see if we can make some noise at Tor.com's 2011 Reader's Choice Awards. You know we won't get any traction on other awards, as the reaction of most sci-fi fans who haven't read/listened to the series is "Oh, please, football? How pedestrian." 

So, bust 'em in the mouth with a vote for THE ALL-PRO by clicking here, then placing a comment in on Tor's blog post

And, of course, spread the word. Get other Junkies to vote. Let's see how our community fares in the broader sci-fi space. 

The BLOOD IS RED stories would also be eligible, so vote for your favorites as "short fiction" selections.

Nice! Not sure about best book cover in that group, as there are some very scifi-ish covers, but I appreciate the vote!

Yes they can run but.....can they hide?

At the time of writing this, there's 30+ votes for The All-Pro (some as All Pro, some as All-Pro), and a few votes for the cover. 

Given there's less than 300 comments there, and that the majority of people are only voting for one novel, as per the rules...if the trend continues, I think we'll make some noise. :D

I'm a wee bit late to this party, but my vote is now casted! There's still lots of time to get involved as the voting doesn't end until Jan 20th!

Done! I've voted it for the best cover too (even though I still do want to clean him with a babywipe)

I can't believe more people aren't voting for Blood is Red for short fiction. 10th place only has 4 votes and Blood is Red is not on the list. Go. Do it now. Get.

@avinjer.....I for one was a little confused when it came to the vote for "blood is red". We're we supposed to vote for "blood is red" or a specific "blood is red" story, you know what I'm saying. And don't forget there is still time to vote for The best Book Cover of 2011 which should be "The ALL-PRO" by New York Times Best Selling Novelist SCOTT "aka The FDØ" SIGLER. Go do that
