In our excitement for the upcoming Best of 2013 Reader’s Choice Poll, we completely forgot to announce the winner of the December Reader’s Choice Poll. We’re about to rectify that. Just as soon as we beat back this infestation of wyrms. Oh, and we’ve got to bake those faerie cakes before the full moon. And we promised that ghoul we’d help him blood-proof his kitchen for easier cleanup after meals. And … you know what, why don’t we just announce the winner first.
The favorite story of December, according to our readers, was Promised Land, by Rebecca Ann Jordan. It wasn’t a very close race this time, but Loss and Understanding, by Jamie Lackey, did put up a good fight. Congratulations to our winner, and thanks again to all our wonderful authors.
Now, back to being super excited about the biggest Reader’s Choice Poll we’ve ever had. We’re revisiting the best stories from last year, and you’ll get to vote on your favorite at the end of January. The winner receives $100 dollars, or the nearest equivalent in gold doubloons, depending on which we have on hand.
