WINNER!!! "Several months ago I wrote and asked you if there was a list
that helped readers find new authors to read by comparing them with others
who write similar types of Science Fiction. And you replied be creating
one of your own. I was at the time amazed at how much you were able to
come up with in such a short time. But now I am even more amazed and
grateful for all the work you have done! I think you could even call
