The Kitschies

The prize for progressive, intelligent & entertaining fiction that contains elements of the speculative or fantastic --

Over the next few weeks, ten great reviewers will each be talking about this year’s finalists for The Kitschies. The sites and organisations taking part represent a small part of the UK’s genre community and its wonderful diversity of interests.

For the Red Tentacle:

And the Golden Tentacle:

We’ve asked all the folks involved to examine the books using the same criteria that the judges do - that is, weighing them up in terms “progressive, intelligent and entertaining”.

The reviews will all be appearing between now and 26 February - you can find links on the Red Tentacle and Golden Tentacle pages, as well as through our FacebookTwitter and Tumblr feeds.

We encourage everyone to take part in the fun and to explore all these great websites, publications and organisations.

Let the games begin!
