The Untitled

C.E. Petit makes a useful comment (to the previous post) about the reformatting of the awards nominee index pages — that displaying the em-dash in the title column for any award citation that does not refer to the actual title of a book or story is perhaps misleading; it suggests, as in academic bibliographies, that the previous title still applies, which certainly isn’t the case here. So this is something else I should rethink… Perhaps, where no title is applicable, some version of the category name, or else a description of the purpose of the category or award, in brackets, should appear in this column, avoiding the use of a blank or em-dash altogether. Just as the ‘for’ comments for World Fantasy Award pro and semipro categories should perhaps be in brackets. I will keep thinking about this.
