Many thanks to the Numismatic Literary Guild for bestowing three of their 2013 awards to our favorite little email newsletter, The E-Sylum. Howard Berlin passed the word to me via email after the NLG Bash since I was unable to attend the ANA convention this year. Ed Reiter kindly forwarded me a list of winners. Check the NLG web site or the numismatic press for the complete list.

Most of the top book winners were announced or reviewed over the past year right here in The E-Sylum. Congratulations to all of the authors and publishers. In particular I'd like to congratulate Roger Burdette, who forwarded these images of his well-deserved award plaques. I'm glad to see his extensively researched, original works getting recognition. These, and all the other top award winners are deserving of a place in the libraries of E-Sylum readers.
