Are You Canadian?  No, scratch that.  Do you think bacon should be round instead of ribbon-shaped?  Are you tired of people thinking that you end every sentence with “ey” (even though you end every sentence with “ey”)?  Do you often find yourself looking south and shaking your head in horrified puzzlement?  Do you often wonder if there is a way to be even more polite?  If so, you may be eligible to vote in the Canadian Aurora Awards, where, as it happens, Amazing Stories contributors (both this website and the magazine) have been nominated for NUMEROUS awards:
Julie E. Czerneda for Best Novel (short fiction the magazine)
Liz Westbrook-Trenholm for Best Short Fiction (short fiction in the magazine)
