I have to admit, I honestly thought Peeps would make it as a contender for the Norton Award.

Excellent! I volunteered a few days ago to write up "Left of the Dial" for the ED/SF Project, but haven't heard anything back yet.

I think David must be busy--have you posted it on his blog?
|Posted on Saturday, February 25, 2006 - 10:14 pm: |
No, I sent him an email. I'll try posting to the blog.

Hey, thanks for that, Nathan. Much appreciated!
|Posted on Sunday, February 26, 2006 - 09:04 pm: |
Appreciated by me too. I was about to volunteer to do that thing.
|Posted on Sunday, February 26, 2006 - 10:02 pm: |
So have you done one? If not, go to it!
|Posted on Monday, February 27, 2006 - 12:04 am: |
I did Mary Rickert's "Anyway" when the thing started and I'm looking for another one to do.
|Posted on Monday, February 27, 2006 - 08:43 am: |
Oh right. Sorry. I've lost track.
|Posted on Monday, February 27, 2006 - 06:21 pm: |
Congrats on the good showing, Ellen. AND...I hadn't seen the final ballot yet until just now, so I'm also pleased to see that Anne Harris's Talebones story made it! Our first story to get beyond the preliminary ballot.
|Posted on Monday, February 27, 2006 - 07:15 pm: |
I saw that-- Congralations to you and Anne!
|Posted on Monday, May 08, 2006 - 06:22 pm: |
Yay for Kelly Link's "The Faery Handbag"!
|Posted on Monday, May 08, 2006 - 07:22 pm: |
Seconded. It's a beautiful story.

There are some totally wonky responses to its win on Slashdot, where the Nebula winners were announced...

Weirdly, I tried to correct a typo above (a few posts up) and the "edit" claims I wasn't the person who made the post and wouldn't let me. Ah technology. I love it!

The irony of editing here is perhaps too rich...
The board seems to have limitations that other online forums do not. (But it's great to have it despite everything.)
