Each skin fights as desperately as I might, if one was all I could ever have. There are no written rules as to which works qualify as science fiction or fantasy, and the decision of eligibility in that regard is left up to the voters, rather than to the organizing committee. How could I leave them like this?
Who are the characters that know and understand the world in fantasy? Generally speaking, only the eligible works with the five highest nominating vote tallies sometimes more in case of ties; occasionally fewer in limited cases go on to the final ballot. Intended to ensure that organized minority groups cannot dominate every finalist position in a category, the new rules define a voting system in which nominees are eliminated one by one, with each vote for an eliminated work then spread out over the uneliminated works they nominated, until only the final shortlist remains.

I've barely even been away, after all; alive for only a few days out of all these endless ages. Another piece of luck: We eye each other, and keep our distance. David HartwellCharles N.
But I've worn enough skins on enough worlds to know pain when I hear it. Why do you have a two-stage system? Flash falls into the fantasy category. There's nothing left but flames and rubble.
