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: Being more selective....
Good point. It always strikes me as peculiar that almost all lists of greatest movies, particularly the ones after the 1970s, have such ultra-manly men movies in the top spots (Shawnshank's Redemption, The Godfather, Fight Club, etc.), and in some cases you have to scroll down to entry number 20 or 30 to find the highest rated movie that has a significant female presence. Strangely enough, that was not the case in pre-1960s Hollywood.

I'm not into My Little Pony, but I know that geeks love to look down on other geeks that are into stuff more "unaceptable" than whay they like. My philosophy is, whatever rocks your boat.

But I would not include comic books in the category of stuff aimed at 10-year old boys. At least not for the past two decades in America. I think the current audience is almost totally of adults and (at best) teenagers.
