Glad you decided to dip your feet in the water. I admit I was very
intimidated at the thought of trying to write Tolkienesque. I was
established in the DS9 fandom, but a complete novice at Tolkien and LOTR.
But I dipped my feet in finally and found that the water's were indeed fine!

We're glad to have you! Can you e-mail authors of nominated stories to ask
their approval to be included in the Awards? And, of course, we can use
more vote counters. If we get enough, we can subdivide, so that the same
three or four aren't having to do all the categories.
