I’ve been busy. Will work on a blog post, later, but the life as a cog in the machine has kept me from really doing much, basically doing work and getting paid, and the free time taken by Battlefield 1’s open beta and sleep. That and I’ve already dropped Qualidea Code and Alderamin on the Sky, just accumulating the episodes to watch on the plane ride from KIAD to RJAA.
Oh, that’s right. I haven’t really talked about that, I’ll explain later.
Now, on to the reason of this reblogging. I think it’s fair to say that after the second year in which “No Award” was handed out by the Hugo committee rather than have ‘undesirables’ win an award, folks who buy books because we enjoy them got fed up and we flocked over to the much more democratic and open Dragon Awards. And it shows, and the salt. The salt is enough to brine a crocodile and leave it falling from the bone as if it was really well done chicken.
