Thanks for the results Billie! ;-)

I'm particularly pleased that John Stevenson's collection won first prize.  A while back I posted a review of this book on the Haiku Foundation.  As I can't locate it at present, it just so happens to be in the current issue of haijinx: http://www.haijinx.org/IV-1/reviews/liveagain.html

Congratulations to John Stevenson! ;-)
