That's one story and one movie more than me. :0) On a more favorable
note, the last installment of _The World of Null-A_ (Van Vogt) as
serialized in _Astounding_ is now being read by me.

Thank you,

It might be worthwhile to create an SF award matrix or graph to show
how the overlap between different awards (Hugo, Nebula, etc) has
changed over time.
