Give it a rest

Give it a rest

So I sighed with relief last week when I did the final post on the Hugo idiocy that has been going on since last spring. Looks like I was premature. The idiocy isn’t going away. If anything it is intensifying. I can’t figure it out. Maybe my problem with understanding it is that I have […]

Ask A Geek Anything Volume 19

Good Morning, and welcome to ask AAGA Volume 20 We regret that we only have one asterisk.  (well, actually that’s not quite true, there’s several of us on staff, so we have several asses to risk, but hey it doesn’t scan as well)  This is the corner of the internet where we’re willing to answer […]

Congratulations to the winner

The Hugo awards for 2015 are over. The clear winner is Vox “Machiavelli” Day. He pretty much got everything he wanted. He wanted Three Body Problem to win and it did. He wanted the Hugos to No Award everything and it mostly did. He wanted to help the SJWs in general and the powers behind […]

an Imodest proposal.

William Lehman/Contributor I’ve been watching the recent unpleasantness between the states of Science fiction with no little interest, both because I sort of have a horse in the game (as a reader, and as an author) and because I sit firmly in the Story over Message camp, also known as the Sad Puppies. Admittedly I […]

Wrongfans against Weasels

Written by Lawrence Railey Seeking Great Stories! I am in a foul mood, presently, and that means it is time for a rant. I am not sure how many of you know me. But suffice it to say that I am a fan of Sarah Hoyt’s, and also of Wright, Correia, Kratman and many others […]

Hugo Awards to be announced Saturday

With the Hugo awards coming Saturday I thought I would ruminate on the meanings to me personally. This is not a Puppy piece, this is simply ruminating on what will happen. I am not predicting winners or losers. My best guess is that no matter who wins what there will be screams of cheating and […]

Last Day for Voting

Last Day for Voting

#hugoawards It’s the final day to cast your ballot in the Hugo Awards. So make sure you’ve done so if you bought into it. This has been from the beginning about getting out the vote, and it promises to be a record-breaking year. Let’s get to it. Still confused about Sad Puppies? I direct you […]

In Defense of Irene Gallo

This is another Hugo Award/ Sad Puppy post. I wish it were not true but there is something that needs to be said. The title of this piece says I am defending Irene Gallo regarding the remarks she made on her Facebook page. I am, to a point. And by the end of this article […]

Open Letter to the Owners of Tor

Open Letter to the Owners of Tor

First some housekeeping issues from my last post here.: Mike Glyer, I skimmed a few of the comments on File 770 last time and I want to give you Kudos for standing up for Cedar against the mouth breather that wanted to call her a dog. If you exercised such discretion about more of your […]

I’m sick and tired of the Hugos

I’m sick and tired of the Hugos

I’m a 57 year old politically disgusted heterosexual male. I can more or less claim white. Family stories say there are a few other things in there, but none particularly show so, who cares? Now that you know I have privilege you can dismiss me and move on to a more diverse writer. Or stay […]
