Okay guys, Hugo nominations are now open. So this is the part where we argue about who to vote for! So I want you guys to make suggestions to the Monster Hunter Nation and those souls brave enough to sign up to combat Puppy Related Sadness.
There are the obvious nominations to end PRS, like Warbound for best novel (puppies love Faye, and Faye loves puppies). And I’ll post my final slate before I turn it in, but I want to hear what you have to say. What other deserving works are out there? Or another way to look at it, what deserving things are out there that the literati twaddle peddlers hate?
I’m nominating Toni Weisskopf for Best Editor, Elitist Book Reviews for Best Fanzine, and I’m nominating Dan Wells’ Butcher of Khardov for Best Novella, first because it was awesome, and second because I bet a random stranger on a game forum, five whole dollars, that I could get a work of game tie in fiction nominated for a Hugo.
So let’s hear some other ideas. What is out there for novels, novellas, short stories, etc? Please post. If I was a typical literati libprog blogger I would then “manage” or “massage” the comments so that only the stuff I liked appeared so it could be “progressive” or a “happy ending”, but since I’m a flaming capitalist right wing extermist I want my comments to be a blood sport of nerd arguing! WELCOME TO MY THUNDERDOME!
So let’s hear it. What do you think will best alleviate Puppy Related Sadness?
