These books are all very good, but we can only pick one winner of the prize. Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be posting reviews of each of these books, including notes relating to our four judging criteria—style, control, damage, and aggression—then on Thursday 27 February, we will be announcing the winner of the Chalkdust Magazine Book of the Year 2019, plus the winner of our readers’ vote.
The readers’ vote will open after we post the final review, so get reading now so you know who to vote for…
