More Awards Shenanigans

So the Commonwealth Prize shortlists have been announced. One of the Canadian authors shortlisted is married to one of the judges. Can't wait to hear about how this isn't a conflict of interest.

UPDATE: Thanks to Steven Beattie for posting this link. Apparently, Dr. Banting had nothing to do with Mr. Stenson's book being on the shortlist and will have nothing to do with whether it wins or loses. Prize administrator Jennifer Sobol has been quoted as saying you can "stick a needle in [her] eye" if this ain't so.

Well, that'll be awkward if he loses.
