And The Nano Winners Are ...

From Ben White at Nanoism:

This year we converted $50 in prize money into $400 of charitable donations to wonderful organizations working from animal health to global health, clean water to fighting hunger. Thanks to everyone who donated! Without further ado, here are Robert Swartwood’s selections for this year:

  1. Johnna Talbot
  2. Pat Tompkins
  3. Sarah Stanton

Honorable mention: Jackie Bateman

Winners will be published beginning this week, starting with our honorable mention and running through Monday the 23rd, when our big (but equally small) winner will go live. Thank you everyone for your generosity.

Thanks too to everyone who entered the Stripped giveaway contest. I failed to announce a winner on Saturday because I ended up taking a road trip with Brian Keene to Wilkes-Barre to see Nick Mamatas, who had been more or less stranded there due to weather. You can read about some of the trip here and here.

So now, without further ado, the randomly selected winner of the Stripped anthology is ...


Congrats, Richard! Email me your mailing address to robert (at) robertswartwood (dot) com when you get a chance, and I'll ship out a copy of Stripped sometime after the launch party February 4th.
