Canadian SF&F Database

Marcel Gagné and I were chatting about a big problem with the Aurora Awards, namely that there was no convenient centralized place for people to post information about Canadian-authored works that they themselves have written, or are aware of by other people, that are eligible (either for the Auroras or other annual awards).

Well, this is the era of the wiki, and so Marcel and I have now set up a new one just for this purpose: The Canadian SF Works Database.

Marcel (who did all the technical work) felt it was important that people need to have an account to post, so please set up an account and go ahead and add to the lists! Marcel and I have simply started this ... but, like all wikis, it's wide open, and belongs to its users ... including you!

The URL is easy remember: Check it out -- and add to the lists! And, please, help spread the word!

Great idea, Rob! Well done. Oh, and I really like the logo :) ...I'm partial to aliens (I author the blog, "The Alien Next Door"

Nice site! This is an idea that's long overdue. Thanks, Rob.

I'll be sure to add this to my list o' links and to pass the word along.

What a great idea! Thanks to you and Marcel!
I too think the logo is very cool.

(The word verification code would make a funky character name - Joeih.)
