2011 Recommended Anthropomorphics Reading List: December update
The Anthropomorphic Literature and Arts Association, which administers the annual Ursa Major Awards, has updated the 2011 Anthropomorphic Reading List to include the titles recommended by furry fans through the beginning of December. This list is often used by fans to nominate in the next year's Awards.
All fans are invited to recommend worthwhile anthropomorphic works in eleven categories (motion pictures, dramatic short films or broadcasts, novels, short fiction, other literary works, graphic stories, comic strips, magazines, published illustrations, websites, and games) first published during 2011, if they are not already on the list.
Send in your recommendations and read the List to see what other fans have recommended this year. Have you read all sixteen comic strips, for example? What have you been missing?
This month is the “last chance” to recommend anything anthropomorphic first appearing in 2011.1 The List has been revised this year to include Furry websites. If you have any favorite websites that were not previously eligible, please recommend them now.
Nominations for the 2011 Ursa Major Awards, in the same eleven categories, will open on 12 January (the first day of Further Confusion 2012) and will be accepted until 29 February. Don’t miss this opportunity to nominate the titles that you felt have been the best anthropomorphic movies, novels, comic strips and books, websites’ games, etc. of 2011 for the Awards. And don’t forget to vote when the polls open on 15 March.
There has been some controversy over the winners of the past two years, especially when motion picture Avatar won over Fantastic Mr. Fox. Remember, the Ursa Major Awards are a POPULAR VOTE award, controlled by what the fans nominate and vote for! If you don’t like what has won in the past, don’t hesitate to nominate and vote yourself this year!
1Actually, the List will accept recommendations to 15 January 2012, to give people time to consider anything that came out at the very end of 2011.
