Time for the results! Earlier this month we asked you to vote for your favorite works from the fiction, poetry, and articles departments, and your favorite columnists and reviewers. The poll was open from 13.00 PST on 13th January 2014 until 23.59 PST on 20th January 2014. Each person could vote for up to five works or nominees, ranking them 1 (first place) to 5 (fifth place). Each first-place vote was worth five points, each second-place vote was worth four points, and so on. It was not compulsory to vote in every category, nor to use all five slots in a given category. Multiple votes on one ballot for the same item were discarded, and we required a unique email address for the ballot to be submitted. Those addresses were only used to verify the validity of ballots.

As ever, many thanks to those of you who voted in our Readers' Poll this year–we always appreciate it, and any other feedback you send us. Congratulations to this year's winners, and thanks to all of our contributors for submitting their work.

"It's not that I don't want to write. It's that there are barriers, and some of those barriers are of my own making, and some of them are not."
Ergo, the ray is a bad thing for Black Barney but a good thing for Candy Cane. Perspective is so important.
"It is hard not to take SG1 at, quite literally, face value. The ethnic composition of the team speaks for itself."
