Scribe Award

The Scribe Awards have been presented since 2007, and honor the best of media tie-in novels — both original novels and adaptations based on television series, movies, video games and other media formats. They are selected by the membership of The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, a relatively new writers group. In its first years, the Scribe Awards have been presented in the categories of General Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Young Adult and Grandmaster. This list includes the winners in all of these categories, with the books linked to the library’s catalog (in cases where the Lincoln City Libraries owns those titles). In 2010, they reworked the categories, as indicated below. Additional information about all of the categories, including each year’s finalists/nominees, can be found at this Scribe Awards page on the IAMTW site.
