I mentioned diversity–every work in this category speaks to the amazing array of books, stories, and magazines being produced by our fellow Canadians. How things have changed in the twenty-five years since On Spec started! I am so proud to call many of the nominees my friends and all of them my colleagues.
And I especially thank the hard-working folks on the On Spec team. They are my extended family. Group hug, everyone!
