    Hey congrats! That’s awesome!

    Not so awesome is seeing Vox Day and some of his cronies on the ballot. I may have to pick up a voting membership this year.

  • Aidan Moher April 19, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    Thanks!

    I’m away from town, so won’t have the opportunity to write up my full reaction until later this week, but, needless to say, I’m thrilled about the progress made in many categories, and disappointed by some of the nominations made in other. I expect “No Award” will have its most prominent showing this year.

    Congrats, and I agree that it’s a very well-deserved nom!
