Acknowledging excellence in this very competitive field, the IAMTW’s Scribe Awards honor licensed works that tie in with other media such as television, movies, gaming, or comic books. They include original works set in established universes, and adaptations of stories that have appeared in other formats and that cross all genres. Tie-in works run the gamut from westerns to mysteries to procedurals, from science fiction to fantasy to horror, from action and adventure to superheroes. HALO, Elementary, 24, Star Trek, Mike Hammer, Star Wars, Shadowrun, Doctor Who: these represent just a few.
This year only one novel from the Star Trek line has managed to get on the list of nominees:

While he is nominated in the Speculative Original category for Elusive Salvation, he also managed to be nominated in another Category, General Original, for his 24 novel Trial by Fire.
