bovil has written about issue 16 of John Purcell's In A Prior Lifetime #16. In it, Ted White has an article about the fan Hugo Awards and complains generally about Worldcons. I've sent a LOC responding to this article, although I did not include my usual observation about people who gripe about the Hugo Awards, which is that IMO most people dissatisfied with the Hugos do so because the Awards don't reflect their personal preferences for who should be winning them.
