  1. What’s the over/under on how long it will be before someone objects to Bradbury because he was (fill in the blank) and demands the award name be changed?

  2. No opinion about the Ray Bradbury award. Just wanted to say thank you to Mike Glyer for all the posts and information. I’m a new subscriber and the amount of material Mike puts out is impressive.
