I should have all of those (with the exception of 1098?), and readily accessible when I get home this evening.

It was 1985. I don't know how that crept in. What I'm looking for, which is unlikely for the 1985 through 1995 Recommended Reading lists is if any online venue got listed in the ss category. This should be a simple quick check. For 1998 it's unlikely, too, but you never know . . . I'd need a scan of that category if there are any. For the Locus Poll, what I need is just the name of the online venue, and what number placement it garnered. With all of that in hand I'll be able to crank out something interesting, after the New Year.
