Thanks for tabulating! That's a really fine list, but how did "Old Pipes" sneak on there?

Hm. Let me review.

A spreadsheet anomaly was responsible for "Old Pipes" displacing the CAS story. Schedule fixed.

Thanks for the fix! Looking forward to every one of these. I count 5 authors new to Deep ones discussion. This is going to be a really weird fall.

Nice chronological spread, too.

Appreciation as usual for the nomination thread and final tabulation, as ever.

One other little fix- the Lovecraft should be 1936. Numbers transposed?

Thanks, got it. That changes the order, now shown corrected. And it makes A.P. "Boucher" White into our Halloween selection.
