Those Insignificant Hugos

Mike Glyer takes on yet another attack on the Hugo Awards based on assumptions that unless tens of thousands of people attend your convention, it doesn't matter, and if it costs anything at all to vote, it's irrelevant, and only awards for movies and television mean anything, since nobody actually reads books.

Okay, yes, I'm overstating it a bit, but it does get my goat when people come in and essentially say, "Give me control over the awards you folks worked so hard to build up for more than fifty years, since I don't really want to pay for anything at all."
