Resurrection for 2018?

So 2 years ago, I set up this site to collect recommendations for Hugo nominees. It generated some good interest and many insightful recommendations. (Thank you all again for that!) Unfortunately, last year at this time I was buried in comprehensive exams for my PhD and wasn’t able to run another recommendation collection.

However, is there interest in something like this for the 2018 Hugos?

I would be willing to collect and post recommendations centered around themed weeks (so that even the less popular categories get some love and attention), and have a better idea how to run things smoother than I did the first time.

It would rely on all of you to write recommendations. Unless you are willing to submit for at least some categories, then it would be rather quiet and pointless. So, is there anyone out there?
