A battle is brewing between these two grizzled veterans of Howard fandom for a Cimmerian Award. Both of them are nominees for a Black Circle Award for lifetime achievement. Each has made huge contributions to Howard studies and if you are like me, you are on the longhorns of a dilemma. I’ve yet to make my pick, but time is running out — the voting deadline is March 1st. If you haven’t voted yet, and are a reader of the journal, mosey on over to The Cimmerian website, get a ballot and cast your vote for this award and the others. My prediction: it’s going to be a dead heat — a 50/50 split.
