  1. Am I missing something? Was it a special pirate themed contest, or was this just amazing coincidence that everything seemed to be pirate themed, at least in terms of the cover porion?

  2. As far as I know it’s just what the eligible voters recommended. Funny you should ask because this set made me go back and look at last year’s finalists — they were from several genres.
