What They Said

No, the Hugo Award Nominations were not rigged

I got myself banned from one of the "right-wing" (for lack of a better term) web sites last year for telling them that their fantasies that Tor Books was buying the election and that there was widespread fraud and rigging of results because the right-wing authors they loved weren't winning Hugos were just that: fantasies and delusions. That was after I had tried to be polite about it. The same goes this year by "left-wing" (again, for lack of a better term) sites who may have some idea that there has been widespread voter fraud to get Certain People on this year's ballot.

Speaking as I was of Tor Books...

Patrick Nielsen Hayden on the Topic du Jour has kind words for those of us like me to do try and do the work that keeps WSFS running, even such things as drafting proposals that we personally disfavor for people to submit to the Business Meeting in order to reduce (it's hard to eliminate) the technical neepery on the floor of the meeting.
