It's an honour just to be nominated

I'm still feeling pretty hopeful, or positive (depending on what ebb my confidence is at when you ask me) about my 33 1/3 submission, but in any case I made the shortlist, which is awesome in and of itself. There are still 170 of us, but that's down from 600 or so. Now if only I could find out who's the other Remain in Light proposal still in contention...

Congratulations and good luck.


Nice work. Maybe if you don't get picked you can start your own renegade series!

Oooog. I have the work ethic to write a book, but maybe not the work ethic to run a series!

Wow- a lot of worthy titles out there, but good luck!!!

This is great Ian, congrats! Very tense having 2 titles vying for the prize. Good luck. MxBx.

P.s. come get my goat metal mix, if you haven't got it already. it's a blinder!

Thanks, Meatbreak! I am a little afraid to ask, but what's goat metal (and where's this mix)?

Any idea how many will be making the even shorter short list?

Not a one.

This mix is on my blog. I am not sure if it really explains what goat metal is, but it's called Baphometic Goat Worship, which might go a little further! Flithy dirty Satanic black metal really. Actually a lot more fun and rockin' than that sounds...but you can be the judge of that.

Damn, son. Roll on. Roll free.

Thank you, sir. What've you been up to, Stew?
