    Have you considered playing poker with other dogs in a black velvet room?

    Ah, the Sad Puppies. Who got their movement hijacked by the Rabid Puppies, but still get the stick for it.

    Other than SKJAM, how many readers will know about the Sad Puppies hijacking the Hugos?

    I do. As for the Sad Puppies getting their movement “hijacked,” well, not so much. The original notion came about really because one author thought he deserved a Hugo, and when he lost the one he was nominated for, instead of pulling up his big girl panties and trying again, he decided it was a conspiracy against people like him (white, male, people who wrote what he thought was “real” SF, which shows a stunning lack of historical understanding). Then he and a small circle of like-minded people RECRUITED the help of the openly racist and sexist “mastermind” of the Rabid Puppies, who hacked the Hugos and managed to get his slate to cover 71% of the nominees. Now the original writer in question is trying to back away, out of some sort of pretend nobility. When you recruit an arsonist to help your cause, how are you surprised when that person sets things on fire? The Hugos are not “broken,” but they will take some adjusting. It should be an interesting vote this year. A lot of people expect No Award to take home several Hugos…

    I’m changing my pseudonym to “Noah Ward” just so I can take home some trophies.

    Rabid Puppies? Hacked the Hugos? I understand Hugos, but what’s the hacking part – haven’t heard anything about that.

    Again, a very good summary.
