There were just 4 nominators and at least 10 selectors. Top net vote was 10 (for HPL and for Kuttner), and there was a cutoff at net-4 votes, with the Chambers being scheduled and my nomination of Ligotti being deferred to a re-vote next quarter.

I'm a big public library user, and I have often had that recourse for our selections in the past, but I'm not expecting to for this next quarter (ours are all closed at the moment). So any additional online versions that people can find will be especially valuable to me, and I figure that goes for other participants too.

Big jump between 1939 and 1980 this quarter, and a quick glance suggests I've read something from each of these authors (but often limited to a prior DEEP ONES selection).

>3 paradoxosalpha: online versions
I think you're probably right, I also rely upon my local but have always relished the convenience of online options here. DEEP ONES actually is my one regular source of online or eReading. I thought I might migrate to an eReader of some ilk, but it turns out I always have plenty of paper books waiting for me, and don't have a commute or other "built in" reading time that lends itself to digital books.

Thanks, paradoxosalpha! I think I've only read two on this list. Very interesting lineup of authors.
