In case you all don’t realize, I’m still a frequent poster on Superversive SF and occasional poster on the Castalia House blog. I just stopped remembering to update my posts here.
Anyway, awhile back after Superversive SF was nominated for a Hugo Award I did a post about why, even though “Space Raptor Butt Invasion” was nominated, I was still glad we got nominated. Another writer for the site wrote a post where he disagreed with me.
I considered responding to it, then I realized: I didn’t care.
I no longer give two shits about the Hugo Awards for anything but entertainment value. Go, “Space Raptor Butt Invasion”, go! They mean nothing anymore. Vox won. They’re utterly irrelevant.
And now the Dragon Awards have been created, which fixes everything about the Hugos that needed to be fixed. So that’s it. There’s no longer a point to them anymore. There is now a fan award more accessible to the people it claims to represent, not to mention catering to a far larger fan base.
The Hugos are dead, and a joke, irrelevant, and basically all the Rabid Puppies need to do now is bury them.
So, hey. Go, “Space Raptor Butt Invasion”, go!
