And the 2015 Hugo Award winners are in the books, including a lot of No Awarding.
The full ballot statistics are here.
The Puppies are already upset by all the No Awarding. Brad Torgersen comments on his own blog.
The numbers in the end suggest that out of 6000 voters, about 10% each were Rabid and Sad Puppies. Enough that with slates they were able to dominate the nomination slates, but got trounced in the general election, as it were.
Here’s my free advice to Kate Paulk:
Forget the Slating. Go ahead and have your community put up a 10-15 item list of books you like. Books that people should read, and if they like, nominate.
Join the discussion, don’t try to dictate the discussion by a short list that gets used as a political talking point and football and weapon.
Slating is a way to dominate, not join, the SFF discussion. You and the Sad Puppies can’t stop or modify what Super Genius Theodore Beale will do–but you can be better actors. You’ll find a far more receptive audience for the books you bring forward, and a lot less hostility.
