New Pulp Awards – Final Ballot

The Pulp Ark New Pulp Awards, as announced earlier this year, are continuing in 2016 and will be awarded at the River City Comic Expo June 11-12, 2016 in Little Rock, AR.


pulparkThe Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Five notched several nomination sin the Pulp Ark New Awards! Thanks for all those that nominated it and congratulations to my collaborators, George Sellas and Chris Batista, for their nominations!

If you’d like to vote on the final ballot, instructions are below. I’ve placed the Lazarus-related nominations in bold!


With nominations now closed for the 2016 Pulp Ark New Pulp Awards, voting is open from February 5th, 2016 to 5:00 PM CST February 21, 2016.

“It’s time,” says Tommy Hancock, Coordinator of Pulp Ark and the Awards, “to pick the best of the best from 2015.  And we have always prided ourselves on being the Pulp Award that has always been open to public voting and we continue that practice this year. Anyone of age can vote, but we do ask, as always, that this be treated fairly and justly. Of course, we are aware of ways votes could be made that are either not valid or simply a result of someone begging everyone in their family and graduating class to vote for them.  What we ask is that those who vote and encourage others to vote do so with the right intent and consideration for all involved.”

Voting is open to all who wish to vote that are 18 years or older.  All voters are subject to being asked to provide verification of age or identity if necessary throughout the voting process and the determining of winners.  Refusal to do so if requested will result in the voter’s ballot being voided.

If you nominated in a particular category and do not see your nomination on the final ballot, it is because either the work/nominee was not appropriate for this year’s ballot due to not having been published or first published in 2015 OR it did not meet qualifications for another reason, such as a nominated work being a comic book or audiobook only, not a work of prose.

Voting opens on February 5 and will be open until 5 PM CST on February 21, 2016. All who wish to vote are asked to cut and paste  the ballot from the Pulp Ark Award Facebook page or any other source where the ballot is posted.  Then, the voter is requested to vote only ONCE for each category and to EITHER only list the nominee they are voting for under each category or to highlight the nominee (s) they are voting for in RED.  Once they have completed their ballot, voters are asked to email the ballot to Each ballot must contain a link to a Facebook page, a Twitter account, an email profile, or some other verifiable source by which the identity of the voter can be affirmed.

In the past, the Pulp Ark Awards were physical plaques presented to each winner. The final form of the 2016 Awards has not be determined at this point, but a physical award of some sort will be given to each winner.
