5 Comments on WINNERS: 2015 Hugo Awards and John W. Campbell Award

  1. No question the issue of slate voting arose the ire of many. I don’t recall this many NA topping categories in the past.

  2. I don’t think there have ever been this many compromised categories before. Other instances of No Award have involved just one. It really is unfortunate that the Puppies took over so many categories and in doing so blocked out so much deserving work. I’ve said this elsewhere but if the Puppies actually cared about quality Sci Fi they would be apologizing to all of the great writers they knocked off the ballot.

  3. Actually, I think the Puppies also owe an apology to the people they nominated without asking if they wanted to be on the slate. They used them like pawns in a nasty game of “push your choices to the exclusion of all others.” This put those folks into a no-win situation, and it wasn’t fair to them.

  4. Sad puppies are sad. Chalk up another for the vast liberal conspiracy.

  5. Congradulations to “Three Body Problem.” A great story, which I have read.

    As for ‘Slate Puppies,” this is clearly a perversion of what little democracy you have left in the voting system. Slate puppy masters are Nazies; slate puppy followers are nothing short of nazi collaberators. One should never buy into such nonsense.

    Beware what you wish for as you might just get it.
