  1. Thank you for plugging the James White Award, but to be clear, the judges for next year’s competition have not yet been announced.

    Juliet E McKenna and Jon Courtenay Grimwood were kind enough to judge last year’s award, but we will be passing the burden on to another set of authors in 2012.

    My apologies for getting the wrong information from somewhere *blushes*. I’ve now amended the news piece. If you’d like to let us know when the judges for the 2012 competition are announced I’d be pleased to add the information here.
