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...
Frank Probst, I'd like to ask why you think this year is any different from last year? Are you aware that a number of reasonable-sounding nominations are actually VD's choices, e.g. he chose the whole of Short Story and all but one in novella and novelette.
VD is possessed of a certain low cunning at least, and he has cleverly selected some "decent" choices in amongst his spoilers in the hope of embarrassing people with his support. He's demonstrated that despite record numbers of ordinary fans turning out to vote, the relatively small numbers of his slate can still lock up 4 or 5 nominations in almost all categories.
Unless you want the Hugo ceremony to be the MC reading out "Space Raptor Butt Invasion" 4 or 5 times in every category every year then the rules need changing, and with all respect to our hosts' concerns that change needs to be EPH, because all 4/6 does is guarantee that it's "only" 4 repetitions of Space Raptor...
