Much to my surprise, my web site has won an award. Thanks to the kind people at PWA, we can now claim another success. "We" refers to my webmaster, Bob Stein, and myself, because the site is a co-production. He handles the technical stuff and I supply the images and text.
The site has worked well from me. It has an e-mail address where readers can reach me, and I answer all my e-mail. Apart from losses after a computer crash several years ago, I've kept their addresses so I can contact them about new releases. They write back occasionally, and I've made some long-distance friends that way.
Mind you, it's a lot of work making the periodic changes and updates. One of the drawbacks of having a webmaster is that you have to spend considerable time typing out instructions to him, while checking back and forth between the site and the files. Images, like book covers, have to be scanned and e-mailed. I could learn to make some changes myself and have a program for it, but I'm too busy with other stuff to learn to use it. Meanwhile, Bob is forever patient and accommodating. Without him, the site would not exist.
