Reviews of Short Fiction
Went there. Did that. Represented.
I'm surprised not to see Thuglit, Plots With Guns or A Twist of Noir (perhaps I missed it) among e-zine editors. This poll must be where nominees can submit their own names for consideration? Which is fine but it is far from a complete representation of 2010.
David--also surprised not to see BTAP up there in addition to the zines you mentioned. I would agree that it's not a very representative sample--and, for whatever reason, it's very skewed toward horror.
Once again there is nothing wrong with these awards and there are some VERY fine editors present. But with no AHMM, EQMM, or Asimov's Science Fiction magazine present it makes me scratch my head. Plus I'd feel a little odd submitting my own name and then asking BTAP readers to vote. Of course I do it for writers who are fearured on BTAP with other awards but not for yours truly. Just me.
I had to submit my blog, Kevin's Corner, again this year for the reviews poll. I had thought folks were carried over from year to year automatically having seen that happen years past with some of the folks mentioned here and others, but that did not happen this year. Maybe because of the site outage?Kevin
Did most of my voting this weekend. It is mainly just a hyped up a event that people get their friends to vote for and does not accurately represent a thing. Happens every damn year, like Christmas. Fun thing to do, but nothing to get one's panties in a bunch over. ;-)
