Tin Ducks 2009

Hi there,

My e-zine, Eclecticism, has been nominated once again for a Tin Duck Award (Best WA Fan Production), celebrating works from West Aussies. That makes it 2 years in a row for nominations! Since the e-zine has only been out in those 2 years, well, it makes me beam with pride.

A HUGE thanks goes out to all the contributors who help make the e-zine special, and to all the readers who think it's special. And of course, to those who actually nominated the e-zine, an extra-big thanks goes to all of you. The voting process now is part luck, part brown-nosing (aw, come on, you know it is) - you have to be a paying member of the convention to vote (Swancon, in Perth, where the award ceremony will be held). I'm thinking I'll be the man at the con with a suit made of hundred dollar bills... just joking. Good luck to all, it's a great lineup (although it saddened me not to see HorrorScope there).

You can check out the nominations at the Swancon website.
