A "best reviewer award"? Surely you jest.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I'd go as a far as a best reviewer with ginger hair award

My guess is that some members may be disappointed if the usual small press nominees are completely edged out by bigger publishers. I run a small press so I'm biased (I'd like us to have a best reviewer award, too!), but as awards administrator I have to accept that if the society had wanted a small press award it would have voted for one at the AGM.

Ditto. Although I do prefer the title "independent press", it does sound a bit more glamorous, doesn't it?

Best reviewer is a really interesting idea... the Hugos have their various Fan Writer sort of things, but that's not really the same. Interesting!
