YOU KNEW THIS WAS COMING, RIGHT? Hugo awards shortlist dominated by rightwing campaign. “Led by Beale – who writes under the name Vox Day and was once dubbed ‘the most despised man in science fiction’ by the Wall Street Journal – the Rabid Puppies has been successful in getting its nominations on the shortlist again this year; out of 80 recommendations posted by Beale on his blog, 62 have received sufficient votes to make the ballot.”

Note: It’s “gaming” the awards when the right does it. It’s “networking” when the left does.
