How about this:
Best recent tracking down of the actual source for a spurious Twain quote?
Or this:
Best made-up "quote" that Twain did NOT say, so far as we know?

Subject: Annual Mark Twain Awards

Is there such a thing yet as a "Mark Twain Awards" for people involved in M=
ark Twain research and Twain-centric books? That is, a tipping of the colle=
ctive cap to individuals who have furthered Mark Twain studies, and have wr=
itten or edited Mark Twain-centric books?
If not, I suggest the following annual awards:
Lifetime Achievement #1 (for a living individual)
Lifetime Achievement #2 (posthumous)
Best New Biography (published in the current year)
Best Old Biography (published prior to the current year, and not previously=
 a winner)
Best New Book (other than bio, published in the current year)
Best New Article (published in the current year)
Best Old Book (other than bio; published prior to the current year, and not=
 previously a winner)
Best Old Article (published prior to the current year, and not previously a=
 winner)
Should more categories be included? What is a better word than "Old"? That =
firefly should be replaced with fire - or, better yet, lightning.
Where to go from here?" is another question, but maybe this can get a discu=
ssion going/some wheels turning.=C2=A0- B. Clay Shannon
