My deliberations over the 2022 Book Review Contest are at an end, and I’m pleased to be able to announce the winners. We had 38 official entries, and I’m really not blowing smoke when I say that the overall quality was really high. There genuinely wasn’t a single entry that I thought of as a cross-off on a first read. (This made my life more difficult, but I’m very pleased about it.) One sour note: I sadly had to disqualify five reviews because they exceeded the 2000-word maximum, even after I excluded headings. I would love to be flexible but it wouldn’t be fair to the 33 entrants who stuck to the stated word count limit. I also feel honor-bound to tell you that, while I used the same anonymizing and numbering system I used last year, due to a stupid slip-up on my part I saw the names of several of the contest entrants. (That is, I saw the names matched with the book titles.) I’m confident that I maintained impartiality and that this mistake didn’t affect the results.
