Aaargh!  And Midnight Robber came in *last*?  Okay, that's clear.
This year's voters weren't literate in English.  Or they were
ringers.  Or something.

(If you want to interpret that as a heartfelt recommendation to
read Nalo Hopkinson's Midnight Robber, please do.  I only took it
off my "lend to everyone who comes into my house" shelf to
replace it with Hopkinson's first book, Brown Girl in the Ring.)
