This year we decided to award those writers whose reviews, articles, and other works for the year 2001 were the most exceptional. The selections were made by myself and my Editor, Jon Bastian. The final judging was done by Jon and I, with four of our core staff: Parama Chaudhury, Michael Julianelle, Joe Steiff, and Hank Yuloff. The following are the results of those votes.
