  1. Congratulations Larry! Send me to the CLFA! They got a website? NO, no Facebook (I dropped them when they started censoring political opinion and working with the global parasite ruling classes to control speech and thought). SURELY they’ve got a website…don’t they?

    1. Hi Tim- Our website is (unwieldy, I know, but CLFA was already taken by one of those domain-selling places).
      We’re also on Twitter as @fictionalliance. Facebook is the easiest place to interact with us, at least till they find out we exist and decide to call us a hate group 🙂

      1. :–) Many thanks for the info Marina. All the best to you and the CLFA for an expanding and successful organization. I intend to buy and read the two runners-up that I haven’t read (and thanks for introducing me to new authors that I’m sure I’ll love). Here’s hoping the SJW’s notice and start calling the CLFA a “hate group”, LOL, thereby showing us the CLFA is valuable, steadfast and true!

  2. Yay , Larry! And I’ll bet more people voted for you than read File— er, ThatBlog…

      1. Let’s pause to savor the cognitive dissonance of whiners who told Sad Puppies supporters to make their own conservative/libertarian award, and are now bitching about SP’s founder winning exactly the kind of award they suggested.

        Mmmm. Salty and repetitive–like eating potato chips.

  3. Nice post about this:

    “Fueled by resentment of those whose views don’t match their own, in combination with truly bizarre grudge against this year’s winner, the usual suspects have engaged in laughably petty hate-fest against both CLFA and the winning novel. And these, my friends, are the true losers, no matter how much money or accolades some of them might have earned, no matter how prestigious they consider their position in the industry, no matter how many sycophant journalists they have at their disposal.”
