    Congrats again, Doc. You’ll have to clear extra shelf space for all the awards coming in. 🙂

    Congratulations and good luck.

    Why in the world are so many long dead authors like Gardner and Spillaine nominated?

    For what it is worth, the video ad between the article and the comments jerks the page up to the top every time it changes which makes it about impossible to comment.
