Tor.com is running a 2011 Reader’s Choice Award, including a “Best Book Cover” category.

While annuals like Spectrum and the Society of Illustrators are serious peer-juried competitions, the Tor.com awards are a popular vote meant for a bit of fun. Buy hey, artists are part of the populace too and it’s a chance to show some readers and publishers that you care about art on book covers.

So, if anyone wants to cast a vote, simply click on this link to Tor.com and list as many 2011 book covers, from any publisher, that you like. No registration needed. Voting ends Friday at midnight.

(I’ll note the Muddy’s own Dan Dos Santos is currently in the top ten for his White Trash Zombie cover. Go Danny!)

Here are a few cover galleries to help jog your memory but, remember, you can vote for any publisher’s books.
