After a crummy Halloween, a thankful Thanksgiving, I'm now experiencing what could be described as an embarrassment of riches.

I suddenly find that I'm a finalist for multiple awards as part of the Hugo Award-Winning podcast StarShipSofa's yearly Sofanaut Awards.

I hope you've been listening to this incredible weekly show, if not, all episodes are archived on the site.

My hope is that you will click on the link above, go to the VOTE NOW link, then vote. For me, of course. That's why I'm here. It won't hurt, it won't take long and lots of awards might help get LORD DICKENS'S DECLARATION printed in the States this year! The categories I particularly care about are Best Fiction and Best Narrator. Best episode would be nice, too. Since Lord Dickens... was 'cast in 3 parts I suggest part 3. Best s.f. writer would be more than nice but even I didn't vote for myself in that category during the first round.

Here's the link:

At the end, don't forget to click to register the vote!

AND...for those of you who haven't had a chance to listen to LORD DICKENS... Here you go: Episode 1...

Thanks for your time, your hoped-for votes and have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Solstice, a wondrous-fair New Year...and anything else you might like to be joyful and/or happy about during the next 370-some-odd days.
