Yes, it's time to vote for work by a living author. (Living authors are, themselves, as entitled to vote as anyone else. But only once, mind!)
Yes, over to the right is the online poll for the last-but-one issue. Other methods of voting are acceptable, of course. You can do it in the comments here, you can send me an email, you can strap your vote to a carrier gerbil and point it in the direction of Tyneside.
The point is to vote, so that one lucky author can win a glorious victory and twenty-five smackeroos. Or pounds, as most people call them.
