Other Suggestions

 


Rename the Best Short Story category either Best Short Story and Novella or Best Short Fiction.

Separate the Best Comic Book or Strip category into two categories.

Move graphic novels from the Best Novel category to Best Comic Book or Strip (or Best Comic Book).

Move comic strip collections from Best Other Literary Work to Best Comic Book or Strip.

Eliminate the Best Other Literary Work category as unnecessary.
