Random quote: Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts. There are seven words that will make a person love you. There are ten words that will break a strong man's will. But a word is nothing but a painting of a fire. A name is the fire itself. -- Patrick Rothfuss (The Name of the Wind)

Hey Dave,

I'm reading all the Mythopoeic winners these days and came across "Digger" by Ursula Vernon. Looking at the Mythopoeic Society's page, vols. 1-6, i.e., the whole series won. In the Award page, vol 1 is listed as the winner. Since there's an Omnibus edition containing all six volumes which came out the same year as its award, would it make sense to label the Omnibus as the winner of the award rather than vol. 1?

Thanks!

That is an excellent idea. I didn't know there was an omnibus at that time but that will clean things up nicely. I'm on it. Thanks, great catch!

After looking into it, the omnibus does not seem to be readily available. It's going for over $300 on Amazon for instance. I think I'll leave things as they are.

Yeah, I noticed that. I got it from my library.
