Origins Nominations

My Polish is rusty, but this year's Origins Award nominations semi-finalist list appear to be loose on the Web. Maybe this was announced earlier, but without seeing the form in Dragon, I was bound to miss it.

I'm nominated as an editor for the first time in my life, for Kobold Quarterly. I'm in truly astounding company in the Non-Fiction category, with James Lowder for Hobby Games: the 100 Best!, with Robin Laws for 40 Years of Gen Con., and with many other worthies. Mr. Lowder pulls a nice trick by also being nominated as an editor in the Fiction category.

In the RPG category, I'm happy to see both aaronace's Suzerain and freeportpirate's Guide to Freeport, plus Ed Greenwood's Castlemourn and Paizo's Rise of the Runelords... And the Traditional Card Game category seems full of greatness. Well, it really was a good year, wasn't it?

Congrats to all the nomineessemi-finalists!
