What the puppies have done is make the Hugos into something that is taken seriously again. A battlefield is always something to be taken seriously... It just never looks the same afterward. I just returned from reading Larry's latest blog post. I laughed my ass off at the comment thread.

A friend once inflicted a Chuck Tingle story on me.

It was gratuitous and the man definitely has an obsession with being pounded in the ass. It was still better sci-fi story than Ancillary Justice. I will never willingly read one of his stories again, but I can safely assume he probably earned a Hugo.

....and Eris looked at what the Puppies had wrought upon the Hugos, and She smiled.

At least you can't say the Hugos are boring anymore.

Maybe we should all write stuff for Hugo consideration.

I do want to say that I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this book by sending the link to my friends, saying "I think that I've found a book you will enjoy, it's right up your alley."

Kinda, but with less Native American influence, more Greco-Roman influence with a large mix of 1950's/60's counter-culturalism (specifiically anti-establishmentism and conspiracy theory belief) and Zen/Sufi mysticism mixed in.

Kinda funny to see the stodgy old Hugo supporters trying to pretend the Puppies have have No Influence Whatsoever! upon the Hugos while alternatively trying desperately to shut them out. But what else do we expect from the folks Orwell warned us about.

Harrumph. For some of us that remember when the winners had names like Asimov, Haldeman, Herbert, Robinson Pournelle Niven, etc., the current crop of the "establishment" are the young punks. And I wish to hell they'd get off my lawn!

Damn straight! Can we kick them off now? Preferably after shooting a few?
