Surprising, totally underwhelming and terribly out of date news!
Waaaay back in early 2007, someone on Talking Squid mentioned The Dust Forms Words in conjunction with a possible 2007 Ditmar for Best Fan Writer. No idea whose idea that was, but the list of suspects is short, and, of itself, surprising.
I quite obviously didn't win, because, (a) I wasn't nominated, and (b) the eventual nominees were really rather excellent (with the prize being taken away by Mr Danny Oz, who is a far, far better man - and writer - than myself).
I'm only blogging this now because:
* I had no idea Talking Squid existed;
* I had no idea someone had discussed this site in connection with the award;
* I had no idea this site was even eligible for the award; and
* I thought I should say thanks to whoever suggested that it might possibly even be an option.
So - thanks, mystery Dustfan(s)!
Now, is anyone interested in campaigning for a Dust Forms Words Ditmar in 2009?
