- First up: BSFA members! Time to get your nominations in for this year’s awards, if you haven’t already. Send your nominations for Best Novel, Best Short Fiction, Best Non-Fiction and Best Artwork to the awards administrator forthwith. This will not be your last reminder on this subject, but since you can always send more nominations later if you forget something now, if you’ve read something you think is good enough to be nominated, there’s no point in delaying. OK? Good.

I think you have some bad HTML after “Where the Wild Things Are:”.
Thanks. Took me ages to work out what the problem was…
This venerable tradition of correcting your linkage is one I’m happy to join. The Marcus Chown link is kerplooey too.
