TIME TO VOTE!
Below you see a Ballot. Copy it, paste it into an email to be sent to me at rgraeme[at]shaw.ca, mark 3 or fewer choices for each category, and hit ‘send.’
Or, even easier, send an email to me at the above address, I’ll email you a copy embedded in the body of the email. All you have to do is hit ‘reply’, fill it out, and then hit ‘send.’ Couldn’t be simpler.
Only Canadians can vote. You must be familiar with at least some of the zines and contributors listed. You can fill in three or fewer choices in each category. You don’t have to vote in every category, but every vote counts!
DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, AUGUST 30TH!
( Which is plenty of time. It takes only seconds to fill out the form and send it off to me. Please do! )

I am somewhat disappointed no one responded to my request for input, nobody made a comment. Oh well, I carry on.
Hmmm… if you don’t want others to read your comments, just drop me a line at < rgraeme[at]shaw.ca. >.
Lately I decided I was needlessly complicating the site by trying to separate Fanspeak from Legends & Lore, and by removing certain entries from the Canfancyclopedia to go under headings of their own.
My solution? Leave every entry in the Canafancyclopedia (except fanzines and apae) for you to browse through. But if all you want on a particular day is to look up all the varied types of awards, for instance, I’ll duplicate them in a separate file labelled awards.Trying to make the style as convenient as possible.
Besides, I was going nuts trying to figure out whether certain entries belonged in FANSPEAK or in FAN LEGENDS & LORE…
1) Converted a couple of files in LEGENDS & LORE into complete Canfancyclopedia listings, namely ( A ) from A to AWARDS & ( B ) from BACOVER to BYDCOMZ!
2) Added ( X ) section of fanzine bibliography, covering XENIUM to XYZ, under SF Zines, Fanzines (A-Z).
3) Reviewed BCSFAzine (#483) and OTTAWA SF STATEMENT (#412).
