If you enjoy your history have a look at Japes V2 AAR "News from Nowhere". Engaging and beautifully written, presented with contemporary illustrations, and obviously conceived with a wealth of knowledge and passion for the subject, News from Nowhere is a great read for those with an interest in American history during the Civil War period. The ACW is one of my favourite reading subjects, so please keep up the great work Jape.
Sorry Tanzhang, but of course - Japes "News from Nowhere" is my candidate for WritAAR of the week 6th - 12th December

It's an interesting read to be sure, but given Jape's form on these matters I fear this may be the kiss of death!
Still well deserved and maybe this time you'll finish one hey Jape?
The Butterfly Effect: A British AAR - The finest and most spectacularly slower-than-real-time British AAR on the board. Updated 11th February 2014 featuring Soviet prop shafts, begging Italian admirals and spicy Royal Netherlands Navy indecision.
Inevitable Defeat - Slovakia '44 - The award winning characters Tiso and Tuka attempt to save Slovakia from defeat and destruction. It probably wont end well. It definitely did win an AARland Choice Comedy Award. Updated 16th September 2013. Voting is still technically ongoing in the 'Which Malar' mystery, but it has been for quite some time.
Furious Vengeance - A 1944 UK AAR - My actual best work - Winner of the 2009 Iron HeAARt Award

Congrats Jape! It's apparently been a while since you last won this AwAARd! I wasn't even on the forum then.
Thank you very much everyone, I have to admit I was unaware anyone was reading News from Nowhere, let alone rating it! Thanks to Redandwhite, partly for the award, partly because I'm now greatly enjoying his AAR.
Now on to the task of picking a winner for next week
Well done Jape! Congratulations!
