Thanks Nathan, I've voted for Peter Robinson, a mastercraftsman, and my favourite in this particular list.
But...... how did these lucky few "nominees" get to be in the list, and by who(m) ?
It's very short, not a lot of choice and not what I would call broad.
Don't they trust us to be able to type in an author's name ? Or did they simply not want to consult the "wider public" on choosing from a very big field - or did I miss any publicity about it before now ?
Wouldn't cause much extra work, surely, the computers do all the hard work....
