Anagrammy Awards Results - November, 1999


26 votes this month in the Anagrammy Awards. Thanks for voting,
everybody.

As usual some close contests and some clear winners. The new voting
system in the Special Category appears to have been well received.

close contest and the final result was a surprise to me. I actually
preferred Mey's anagram.
