however, the lovely deb biancotti, with her story 'king of all and the metal sentinel' did, so that's good. if i am to be beaten, it's better to be beaten by one of your friends, and i can only wish deb the best with it in the pursuit of squashing children. (i would also like to say that i had a fairly good idea that she would win.)
another winner was my friend cat sparks, who won for her anthology Agog! Fantastic Fiction, her cover for Passing Strange, and a third for best fan artist. so, congratulations to her too.
and thanks to those who voted for me to get me nominated. it was lovely, and probably got a few people to notice me who haven't, which can only be good.
