Have you read Alice in Wonderland? Of course you have! (If you haven’t, you should.) Remember this?
“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
But what does this have to do with the Realm Awards? you might be wondering.
This year, our awards are ALL Realm Awards!
- The Parable Award is now the Realm Award for Cover Design
- The Alliance Award is now the Realm Award: Readers’ Choice
- And the old Realm Awards are still Realm Awards!
“Oh, you can’t help that,” says Scott Minor. “They’re ALL Realm Awards. The Parable Award is a Realm Award. The Alliance Award is a Realm Award.”
“How do you know I want to enter the Realm Awards?” you ask.
“You must,” said Scott, “or you wouldn’t be reading this.”
