Hugo Nominees Announced

MidAmericon II has announced the final ballot for the 2016 Hugo Awards. You can find the list here:

http://midamericon2.org/home/hugo-awards-and-wsfs/2016-hugo-finalists/

It is, to say the least, a mixed bag. A lot of good books and stories, writers and artists... cheek by jowl with some stuff that is considerably less worthy.

I will have more to say when I've had more time to review and digest the ballot.

Holy crap! Until I read your comment I never realised Seveneves is a palindrome.

Guess I'm one of the Lucky 10,000 today. Thank you.

As for the Hugo finalists, I hoped this wouldn't happen but am not surprised. I figured the 500+ members who voted Vox Day for Best Editor last year would be sufficient in number for the Rabid Puppies slate to do well this year despite the greater overall participation in the nomination stage.

On the positive side, a number of non-RP works are also finalists, and if nothing else, this result strengthens the support for ratifying E Pluribus Hugo.
