The shortlist for the overall 2011 British Sports Book Award has been announced, with eight titles in contention for the prize.

Last night (May 10th), online voting opened to the public, who can choose from the winners of eight individual categories at last week's British Sports Book Awards.

These include Beware of the Dog by Brian Moore, Catrine Clay's Trautmann''s Journey, Promised Land by Anthony Clavane and Harry Pearson's Slipless in Settle.

The Grudge by Tom English, James Lambie's The Story of Your Life, Bounce by Matthew Syed and the illustrated title '61 The Spurs Double by Doug Cheeseman, Martin Cloake and Adam Powley complete the list.

Moore has already achieved success with Beware of the Dog, which picked up the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award and was described by the judging panel as a 'uniquely engaging book and a fascinating exploration of what lies beneath the tough exterior of one of England's greatest rugby players'.
