The Furry Writers’ Guild has posted the final ballot for the 2015 Cóyotl Awards.
Only Guild members may vote on the winners. “It’s the closest thing in furry fandom to a juried award, as opposed to the Ursa Major Award which is open for the public to vote upon,” Fred Patten explained. The deadline to cast an online ballot is July 1.
All the nominees but three in the Best Novel category are published by FurPlanet Productions. Of the three non-FurPlanet novels, two are published by Sofawolf Press and Barsk is published by Tor Books.
