So this happened.

Congratulations to everyone who chose not to game the system. Special congratulations to Noah Ward, who I expect will have a very strong showing this year.

You fucking assholes. I hope you’re happy.

World Science Fiction Society? The Hugos are broken. You might want to look into fixing them. Somehow.

ETA: I have some more thoughts here.

…well, not really a links post this week. I’m on vacation from my day job (new job starts Monday), so I figure I may as well take a break from the links post, too.  Instead, here’s a GIF of Mulder in the red speedo in honor of the announcement of an X-Files miniseries.
