Perfect! Jay and Ruth have provided our publishers with all sorts of new material to put on book covers . . . and at least as meaningful as what we have now. Great laugh, guys. I want to be on one of these juries.

You forgot the Illiterate Artist Award, given to artists for magazine or book covers in which the artwork shows a scene or image which explicitly contradicts the manuscript.

Also, the A'p'o's't'r'o'p'h'e A'w'a'r'd given to the writer who most pointlessly overuses apostrophes in made up words to give an alien flavor to an otherwise bland story.

I'd like to see the "Qrhwx Award" for the SF/F name that most successfully stops the reader dead in their tracks as they try to figure out how to pronounce it.

And let's not forget the "As you Know, Bob" Award.
