I very, very rarely reblog. However, Maggie Clark writes a well-researched, fair-toned piece on the recent scandal/concerns behind the 2015 Hugo Nominations list. I will say that I have read articles written by supporters of Vox and Sad Puppies to try and get a balanced view on the matter, but I don’t think I could have compiled my thoughts any better than this wonderful piece.
While I think it is interesting that the Hugos are getting a kickback on this when (reportedly) Scalzi received none while “doing the same thing” while President of SFWA (conflict of interest?), my opinions are still out while the situation develops. I will be following this closely, though.
