Noticeably absent from the list is my story "Toad Lily" from Cemetery Dance. Alas, despite strong scuttlebutt on the street that hinted otherwise, my bridesmaid status will continue for another year. I guess I'll just have to work harder to earn the nomination. Still, my thanks go to everyone who read and enjoyed "Toad Lily".

Big congratulations and good luck to all the nominees! I'm voting for sarahlangan in EVERY category!
