Here's a headline: Women and authors of color won big at this year's Hugo Awards.

A few of the slate noms did win (which happened with one nom last year, Guardians of the Galaxy), but they were works like Sandman and Martian that would very likely have won without the Puppies' interference. A couple of No Awards this year, but not the majority like last year. (Surprising no one, Vox Day has declared that this is what he wanted to happen.)

Chuck Tingle has released a new book called Pounded In The Butt By My Hugo Award Loss.

No doubt he had a Hugo award win book ready as well.

I would guess that he actually typed up one book and just palette-swapped it so as to have a version for either outcome.

This year's Hugo noms are up, and the new voting system appears to be working; there are a couple obvious puppy picks, but it's a maximum of one per category, as expected, instead of an entire slate.

After last year's Tingle nomination backfired, they seem to have picked a different gay dinosaur erotica author this year.

Internet friend of mine from way back, pre-Pyoko, is on the Short Story nomination list again this year:

“Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies”, by Brooke Bolander (Uncanny Magazine, November 2016)

Hoping she clinches it this time, but no matter what happens, "two time Hugo nominee" doesn't sound half-bad no matter how you slice it.

At first, I was shocked and amazed to learn that Best Dramatic Short only had one Doctor Who episode nominated. Seemed impossible, given the history of the category.

Then I learned that only one episode aired in 2016. That'll do it.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

It's an... odd episode for them to pick. Definitely a pretty good one, but like, Huge-worthy?

Arrival and Expanse better win that shit.

Since 2006, the "Best Dramatic Short" Hugo could be more accurately described as "Best Episode of Doctor Who Written by Steven Moffat" so, yeah, of course it's there.

Well, unless you count 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, or 2016.
