2010 Active Fans and Their Works

A wiki for listing works and people eligible for nomination for the Fan categories of the Aurora Awards.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Being listed here does NOT constitute a nomination for any award; this is merely a database of individuals, groups and works eligible for nomination.  Until the official awards administrators release a final voting ballot, no one is a nominee, and ONLY works listed on a final ballot are nominees.

* An asterisk denotes a creator's preferred work, when a creator has more than one work eligible in a given category -- the one they'd like to see nominated, or the one they recommend you read if you're only going to read one of their works.  For more information about the asterisk designation, see here.
