Winner of Diagram Prize

The Diagram Prize goes to the oddest book title of the year. (See previous blog post,

The 2009 winner has been announced:
Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes by Dr. Daina Taimina (42% of the vote)

Runner-up was What Kind of Bean is This Chihuahua?, which got 30% of the votes. My favorite, Collectible Spoons of the Third Reich, got 11%.

Too bad the contest is only for published books. Boy, if we could nominate some of the titles from submissions we receive...

Good! I voted for it :-)

(Nah, I didn't want Collectible Spoons to win. Too sicko :-))

Damn, now I'm feeling like maybe I should have submitted my third EC book under its Harlequin Presents alternatitle, The Non-Monogamous Paper Merchant's Forbidden Lumberjack. A missed opportunity if ever I had one.

Congrats (?) to the winner!

I guess I won't be calling my new story "Vampires in Lust"... *grin*
