* We did not begin submitting books for awards until 2017. The impetus for submitting to awards competitions arose from repeated questions about whether the Clearinghouse was a “real” publisher. We should have nominated our books for awards from the start, and we apologize to our authors, editors, and book series editors for not doing so.
