    I'm putting this on neutral ground so hopefully both CM and SW&D can get involved.

    Nominations are open.



    We may have to have seperate brackets for visual and prose (or whatever Synthese writes in)

    I'm going to go ahead and nominate Vox.

    Writing from the corner of the rec room near the ping pong table at the retirement home in Lynn, he managed to break all the most important stories.

    I would buy a hard copy of everything he's written for SF without hesitation

    Not the loudest but I think this fit best captures the 85 zeitgeist

    uhhh, are you listening to this @LA Guy?

    My own nomination goes to The Wall. Think about how many asses were on it, and how much joy it provided to everyone. What a champ. What a trooper. The Wall to end all Walls. If only we could all be so strong.

    Just look at that concavity. Mmm-mmm. Here's to you, babe. Arrivederci, or whatever.

    My vote is either Unbel doing Blue Steel/Le Tigre/Magum or gdl in his best Masaccio impression.
