I agree it’s not the same (almost said as much in my previous post but didn’t bother ). I’ll put a poll up for it as soon as a winner is officially selected.
As for nominating or voting on partial books, I think that might only work for “real” short story collections, rather than slice of life stories. Maybe there’s a way to make it work, but I don’t really have a good idea at the moment. If you have a suggestion for how to do it I’m all ears.
