  1. That’s a strong line-up of leadership. I look forward to seeing what SFWA does in the coming year.

  2. Am I the only one who is a little thrilled to see that Tingle even entered the race?

  3. Reportedly, the vote totals are in the SFWA Forum, the information not to be disclosed to the public.
