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.

Re: If it ain't broke...
Last year several people declined after the nominations had been announced, when they realized that their nominations had only been achieved by gaming the system.

Did anyone decline this year? Possibly. Probably. But if anyone pulled themselves off the ballot, they did so before the announcement. We won't know about it until the nomination totals are announced on Hugo knight... unless, of course, they choose to tell us themselves.

This year it looks like the Puppies chose enough works that would have been nominated without gaming the system to make that choice less attractive.
