I've just found out that I won the 2007 Faculty of Arts Postgraduate Publication Prize for my article "Dr Frankenstein Meets Lord Devlin: Genetic Engineering and the Principle of Intangible Harm", published last year in The Monist (with a nominal 2006 date on it). Apart from the prestige and recognition, and a certificate to frame, this carries prize money of $1000. Off to have a celebratory lunch now, and I gather there'll be a ceremony in the School of Philosophy and Bioethics later on. I'm grinning from ear to ear about this: the recognition is really nice.

Congratulations, and don't stint yourself on that lunch. :-)
I agree with Blake; eat some really nice fire-roasted peppers, or something!
Good one, and cool name for the article.
Well done Russell :)

Thanks, people. I had pizza and Champagne ... maybe an odd combination, but still ...
The Monist is on-line through Expanded Academic ASAP or ProQuest 5000 International.
