The prize is named AFTER, not for!

Methinks that "anonymous" does not understand the word "sic".

But, nonetheless, very well deserved for one of my favourites. Thanks for posting, Karen.

I added [sic] as I wasn't sure if the comment was directed at me or the Shelf Awareness article. I just copied the snippet - it could be an American English way of phrasing it?
