That's a more positive accolade than I would have expected from a paragraph
that began with "hordes of DWJ fans." :) Very cool.
I have been tinkering with my book database, adding awards and nominations,
and was surprised at how many DWJ titles had come up for the Mythopoeic

been surprised--and certainly the quality of her work is such that it
deserves recognition--but I think it made me realize that I still expect to
be in an elite minority when it comes to appreciating DWJ. As if nobody but
us chickens here reads her stuff....
