The Member of the Month for last issue was Adam Janus--congratulations on
a second win in just a few months. Adam was also a very close second in
the voting for the Member of the Year Award. The voting this year was
extremely close all the way around, and we would like to thank everyone
who took the time to vote. Almost 2,000 votes were actually cast and the
voting was so close, no one received more than 13% of the vote. In fact,
there were only a handful of votes separating the first five contributors
who received the most votes. So, congratulations to everyone who
participated and thank you one and all for your many, great contributions
to "The World of Myth." I also wish to thank the many readers who in
fact voted 'me' Member of the Year and I am honored to be in the company
of so many wonderfully talented artists and writers. Thank you, again,
one and all for your continued support.
