 Section one, Nominations to Date. I've excluded seconds; I think for the
 ease of bookkeeping, it's a good idea to vote on all the nominees at the
 end. Can those who've made nominations go back through this and add author
 and book or series? Thanks.
 Section Two, Rules to Date. Let me know if these seem complete, or if you
 have any additions or clarifications. Also, suggestions re: ranking rules.
 Section Three, FAQs. Can someone opine on the Anglo/non-Anglo question or
 second mine?
 There you have it.
 Best Regards, Erick
