"Congratulations to my fellow nominees" - so how enjoyable a sensation was it to write that line?

It's always especially rewarding when being polite is also enjoyable, rather than something you *have* to do.

Well, Kim, glad one of us made the final ballot!! Wish I could have got Never Ceese on the rec list sooner but I didn't even know about the HWA or how to be recommended for a Stoker at all until very near the end of the year. So I was very happy to make the preliminary ballot. Good luck!
