Have you been reading list after list of people’s “Best of 2009”, dismayed to find your name and title of your book or story or poem or essay or anything damn thing you’ve done entirely and everywhere absent from said lists? I am hereby offering my services. I’m putting together my own “Best of 2009” list, and if you’d like to be on it, please indicate this in the comments section. Be sure to include the title(s) you’d like to see. What’s more, in the spirit of Christmas, I’m offering this service ENTIRELY FREE OF CHARGE. It’s my gift to you.
I’ll be posting my list here at Big Other next week, so you’ve got some time to choose which piece you’d like me to include. Please note that it must have been published in 2009, and it must have been authored/created by you.

how about liesisle.com as “best new lit journal of 2009” i “created” it does that count
It most certainly does. I’ll add liesisle.com to my list of best new lit journals of 2009. Of course, should other journals wish to be added to the list, you’ll have to share the title. But you’ll be there.
please add my best of 2009 list to the list of best best of 2009 lists.
I will absolutely list your list, Alec. It’s been a slow year! I might have only two things on the list.
oh, oh! I want my best of list to be on this list, too!
I think Sexy Santa crashed my browser (or maybe it was the firefox update), but he was worth it. Thanks for that.
This post/your offer is hilarious.
I thought the hay/snow theme was a little strange. Are they going for “manger”?
clearly, WE’RE GETTING ON could be one of the best books that didn’t come out in 2009.
How about for a category like: “Best 2009 hype for a book being published in 2010”?
Sexy Santa looks like a very scratchy time.
