I understand your point, but, philosophically, I think awards should go to whoever is best (to the degree that "best" can be objectively determined). If you think there are five stories better than "Strangers in Town" or the other two Macdonald debuts, nominate them. But if there's space on you nominating ballot AND you think it was one of the best short stories you read, then nominate it.
