Gathering together the disparate thoughts of tens of bloggers is no simple task in any case, but to deliver one by distilling multiple awards into a single cohesive showcase of peer appreciation was an immensely tall order.

However, Drackarn at Sand, Cider and Spaceships took time out from his usual bloggery of fiction, faction and spaceship action to bring some glitz and humour to the most ambitious community celebration to ever grace the spaceship interwebs. Maybe.

In any case he does a fantastic job and thoroughly deserves comments, acceptance speeches and heckles from you the peers, nominees, winners and audience of The Podars.

Go now and take a stroll down the red (it really should be blue) carpet.
