If so, I can recommend it to the committee chair, who will chase down the
publisher (Tor already has the majority of this year's nominees) and request

C. J. Cherryh, "Invader", on why we visit very old buildings:
      "A sense of age, of profound truths.  Respect for something hands
      made, that's stood through storms and wars and time.  It 
      persuades us that things we do may last and matter."
