  1. I’m very excited to see what John Fleskes does with the book this year in his first go round after inheriting the book from Arnie and Cathy Fenner.

    I am choosing to overlook the nominees so that I can be surprised on May 10th in Kansas City, MO when the nominees and winners are announced at an Oscar-style party at the Midland Theater as part of Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 3.

    Come one, come all. It is an amazing time.
