    Is there any way we can put these results into context? That is, how many total entries were there? How many received Honorable Mention status? How many received Semi-Finalist status...etc. Is this information being made available elsewhere or sometime in the future?

    Sorry for the naggy questions.

    Dear Nicole,

    I'm glad. It is a lot of fun for me, I must say. Check out your name on the list now. No "h"

    Dear KP,

    Here is the breakdown for you and those who don't know:

    We don't give out the number of entries. It scares people.

    Honorable Mentions are between 5 and 15 percent each quarter. It depends on how many good stories there were.

    There is no set number on semi-finalists either but it is approximately 8 to 12 per quarter.

    There are 8 finalists always. Those are the stories that get sent to the quarterly judges and the 3 winners are chosen from the 8finalists.

    Hope that puts it in perspective for you.

    Hi Joni,

    Thank you for your call Friday evening. I was at a science fiction convention in Pasco WA (RadCon) when I got the call and I was positively beaming all weekend long.
