Would it be inappropriate to start listing stuff to look out for that's being published (or has already been published this year)?

We don't start taking recommendations until the end of September (though I have just finished creating a new online form - learnt a lot from this time!) but I suppose it wouldn't hurt if you really wanted to. Bit confusing, perhaps?

I'll make the recommendations form for next year's awards available by the end of the month, after taking in the changes and suggestions from the AGM.

In the meantime, though, I've decided to withdraw Theaker's Quarterly Fiction from the Best Magazine award for as long as I'm the awards administrator, or as long as I'm the editor of the magazine - whichever tenure comes to an end first! Individual contributions will still be eligible, in the same way that stories from BFS publications are.

We were delighted to be on the shortlist this year, and I'm impossibly grateful to every one of the silly, lovely people who voted for the magazine. But I only left it in because (a) I assumed it wouldn't get any votes and (b) a constitutional glitch meant that I couldn't ignore the votes that did come in. That glitch was all sorted out at the AGM - and now you know why I wanted to fix it!

Of course, now I can sit back every year and say, we'd have won that. ;D
