Back in March we reported that Putney author Simon Acland had had two of his books shortlisted simultaneously for The People’s Book Prize. His First Crusade Holy Grail novel, The Waste Land, is one of twelve books selected in the fiction category, and his venture capital guide for entrepreneurs, Angels, Dragons and Vultures, is one of twelve chosen in non-fiction.

Thanks to your votes, both The Waste Land and Angels, Dragons and Vultures have reached the final of The People’s Book Prize in fiction and non-fiction respectively!

Simon told PutneySW15.com:“I think that I am the first author to reach the final in two categories. I am extremely grateful to you for your support. The final round of voting lasts until 30th May. I have a good chance but I still need more votes. Even if you have voted, you can vote again now in the final round.
