To start with, the comments section of File 770 is, of course, not having a good day.
August 11, 2016 at 2:44Yeah, nice idea Puppy Kickers .... except....Scalzi on his Dragon Award nomination:
Now I want to register for the Dragon Award just to vote for Scalzi, since his book is one of the few worthwhile things nominated."
Yeah, I looked at the SF and MilSF Finalists, and thought, “Really? This is the best you could come up with?”
"John Scalzi Verified accountYeah, so, that's not going to end well.
@mrsftv It's lovely to be nominated. And yes, I'll ask to be withdrawn."
Speaking of "Doesn't end well..."
I’ve just read Declan Finn’s post.Heh. Sure. Right. I'm embarrassing, yet their guy wouldn't be caught dead in a stand-up fight.
Sad, desperate, and embarrassing seems to sum up much of Finn’s public persona."
And embarrassing? I think my entire reaction was "Oh well, Brian Niemeier is gonna win, but, Hell, I'm nominated! YAY!!!!" What exactly is so embarrassing here?
I think I just rolled my eyes so hard, I hurt my eyes. Business as usual. Whatever news that fits the tint.
In other news, Vox Day had intricate, thoughtful breakdowns on why he voted for what he voted for.
Then he got to horror, and said he was voting for Brian Niemeier. All he wrote was: "Sorry Declan, you are screwed."
I'm sorry, it's the fourth time I've read that line, and the bluntness still strikes me funny.
Meanwhile, in another part of the internet, my acquaintance Russell Newquist can't decide between me or Brian. He's come up with a solution....
There will be character on monster violence. Let the fun begin!
