A lightning strike! I found out today that my Analog story, "The Inn at Mount Either" is one of the finalists for the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for best short science fiction of the year.
The complete list of finalists is at http://www.ku.edu/~sfcenter/sturgeon-finalists.htm

ELT Awards...hmmm...isn't that the Association of Evangelical Llama Trainers?

I'm thinking ELT is for: Everyone Loves Talebones!
Hey! Where are the emoticons? Didn't they used to be handy for grabbing?

Heh heh, I like that, H!
The smiley face appears automatically if you make the universal symbol for it (colon and right parenthesis).
I think the others can only be chosen when creating a new topic.

I tried that, of course!
It must form its little yellow face later, when I finalize this post.

Yes, it's little yellow face is there.
But aren't there a whole lot more? You have to start a new topic to see them? Huh!

Yeah. Go to the top of this topic and hit START NEW THREAD and you'll see what I mean. You don't have to start a new topic, of course, but maybe you'll come up with something spiffy!
