Related Works Book Bomb

Larry Correia has posted the third and last of the 2015 Sad Puppies Book Bombs, this one for Related Works and the Campbell nominees:
BOOK BOMB!

This is our last Sad Puppies 3 Book Bomb. Remember, you’ve only got a few more days to get your nominations in for the Hugo awards. The Sad Puppies bombs are special because these are the works in the different categories that the Evil Legion of Evil has put forth as suggestions for our Hugo nomination slate. The last two we did went amazing.

RELATED WORKS:

CAMPBELL AWARD:
Nominations close on March 10, so if you're registered to vote on the Hugo Awards, don't forget to review the Rabid Puppies recommendations as they've been updated several times to reflect various eligibility issues, gun-shy authors, and other changes. Don't leave it to the last minute!

In addition to the three Sad Puppies recommendations for the Campbell Award, please note that Rabid Puppies is also supporting Rolf Nelson for his debut novel, The Stars Came Back. Castalia House will be publishing the sequel to it later this year. As before, if you've already bought these works, please consider supporting the Bomb by posting a review of them.

My only problem this year is picking between "Transhuman and Subhuman" and "The Hot Equations." They're both so damn good that it's a hard call.

Fortunately, at this point, you can nominate them both.

No Stupefying Stories in the Rabid Puppies slate?

Reading Kratman's book now, it's great

I'll still have to look at Letters From Gardener, and the two non-ESR Campbell nominees (kaiju, and Flight) - but the rest of them were all thought-provoking and worthy of nomination

Perhaps I'm being too detail oriented, but I'm having difficulties matching some of the Rabid Puppies recommendations with the ballot. For example, under Rabid Puppies' Best Novela category, one of the lines reads:

"The Plural of Helen of Troy" by John C. Wright, City Beyond Time / Castalia House

In that example, would "City Beyond Time" go in the Title, Author, or Publisher field? Or is that unimportant?

Also, for the John W. Campbell Award recommendations in Rabid Puppies, a blank space appears on the third line. Are you actually recommending that nothing be entered on line 3, and that the third and fourth items in your list be entered on lines 4 and 5? Again, I have no idea whether that makes a difference or not.

Some other minor discrepancies: Sasquan has an award for Best Fan Artist that Rabid Puppies has nothing corresponding to, and the categories of Best Editor (Long Form) and Best Editor (short form) appear in reverse order on the Sasquan ballot from that of Rapid Puppies. Just FYI.

Is Andy Weir eligible at least for the Campbell award? I hope so.

I have.

My problem is I have read much of the slates, but not a lot else published in 2014. It's a bit awkward to nominate the only things you've read that are eligible. I know that most of the books published last year are either steam punk Zombies, mediocre sequels, or selkie romance.. But what if I missed something awesome? There's not much time to catch up.

The nice thing about the process is you can read through the short list of nominees before voting.

Will the sequel to TSCB also be in script format? I am hoping the answer is no.

Blogger Dave W. March 04, 2015 5:31 PM  

Slightly OT: Just caught up to Hyperspace Demons in my reading queue and finished it quickly. That was brilliant! I hope Mr Moeller has more stories planned for that universe.

Blogger Vox March 04, 2015 5:48 PM

No. And TSCB is being re-released in conventional format.

I hope Mr Moeller has more stories planned for that universe.

Perhaps, but in the meantime, there are bigger and more exciting things to announce regarding Mr. Moeller's future books soon.

Blogger Dave W. March 04, 2015 5:57 PM  

Bigger and more exciting? I await with baited breath!

And before I forget, I need to go leave a review. Hyperspace Demons was really good, and I want more! :-)

Just a note. The nominations close on midnight March 10.

You spent money on this. Don't waste it.

Foster - Nope. Normal prose, for better or worse.

Blogger James Dixon March 04, 2015 9:15 PM  

Kaiju Apocalypse seems to be on sale for $0.99 right now. Also, if check the previous post, "Championship B’tok" is a free download from Amazon, and a story called “On a Spiritual Plain” is available to read for free.
