  1. Why is “Sixty-One Nails” eligible? Wasn’t it published in 2009?

  2. Is Book of Secrets eligible? I thought it was first published in 2009

  3. I put the books and covers in (rough) order of publication and the editors in order of who I could see first. Alphabetical is ok, I suppose, but you always told me to confound expectations…

  4. You’ll never make it as an award-winning editor if you can’t handle alphabetical surname order, you know.

  6. Well, it was a 50/50 chance, wasn’t it? 🙂

  7. I like how you put your name first in the editor category. 😉
