Hugo Finalists 2017



Worldcon 75 will announce the 2017 Hugo Award Finalists at 10 AM EDT. Stay tuned for futher details.

2017 Hugo Finalists of Note:
  • Best New Writer: J. Mulrooney, An Equation of Almost Infinite Complexity
  • Best Fan Artist: Mansik Yang
  • Best Fan Artist: Alex Garner
  • Best Fancast: The Rageoholic
  • Best Fanzine: Castalia House blog
  • Best Fan Writer: Jeffro Johnson
  • Best Fan Writer: Chuck Tingle
  • Best Semiprozine: Cirsova
  • Best Editor - Long Form: Vox Day
  • Best Short Story: "An Unimaginable Light" by John C. Wright
  • Best Novelette: "Alien Stripper Boned From Behind By the T-Rex" by Stix Hiscock
  • Best Novella: "This Census-Taker" by China Mieville
  • Best Novel: The Obilisk Gate by NK Jemisin
Best Series is pretty gruesome. Only Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga is one that is worthy of any note. Best Novel is even worse; as expected, Jemisin should be the odds-on favorite to win her second straight Best Novel Award. That is arguably a bigger joke than "Alien Stripper Boned From Behind By the T-Rex", which is why it behooves us to wholeheartedly support The Obilisk Gate.


Still. Not. Tired.

Not much to look forward to this year, for the Pups.

Blogger VD April 04, 2017 9:14 AM  

No, it's a pity they changed the rules as we totally could never have expected. So sad that we won't be able to get any nominations at all.

C'est la vie.

I don't think many people voted. But I can't predict whether we got two slots or not.

Rabid Puppies 2018: The Humpening with Corrosion for Best Novel

Oh, good lord.

I just noticed current editing.

Is Young Man's War also by Johan Kalsi?

Anonymous Raptor disrespect from behind April 04, 2017 10:08 AM  

OT:

VD you're editing Young Mans War?

Is that going to be similar The Corroding Empire or something in an entirely different direction?

Blogger VD April 04, 2017 10:10 AM  

Totally different. And it's excellent. Among the best SF we've published yet. It's by Rod Walker.

"Dramatic presentation." Well it certainly wasn't a comedy.

Those are some bad options for best series. I think Bujold has this one in a walk away...even with the last book in the series being what it was.

Anonymous Looking Glass April 04, 2017 10:36 AM  

You see "Alien Stripper Boned From Behind By the T-Rex" as the first entry, laugh, and then think "well, they can't be named worse than that". Then you see "Touring with the Alien" and "You'll surely drown here if you stay" and wonder, is this the Best Novelette or best Soft-core porn?

All of these sound like 90s Skinemax titles.

Vox is an exacting Dark Lord.

Big congrats though to Castalia House blog and Jeffro Johnson. The work there is incredible. Not to toot my own horn too much but y'all might wanna check out this morning's article. :)

If I could pick one thing to focus on though, it would be best Semi-Pro Zine. Cirsova Magazine is really changing the face of SF/F. It's so good it's amazing. Worth checking out and worth making sure they win. Not connected to that other than being a fan.

Anonymous dh April 04, 2017 10:52 AM  

It's really weird that a Hugo winning novelist - for best-novel no less - is still not able to be a full-time writer. How little pull does the award draw when the author is either only recently a full-time author or is still doing social work fullish time to support herself?

Anonymous KJK April 04, 2017 10:55 AM  

Not a single white male in any the main four fiction categories (Novel, Novella, Novelette, Short Story) or the Campbell Award, except the ones the Rabid Puppies put there.

I guess that makes Vox Day the champion of diversity...

@VD

It was worth pointing out. He is far more politically/ideologically active than your usual Tor crowd that sticks to blogs and twitter. He's a real deal, and a real enemy.

Also, calling someone or his work oh so "human" is one of the most vacuous compliments out there.

Blogger Steve Moss April 04, 2017 11:41 AM  

I think the The Peter Grant / Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch is pretty good.

And Meiville may be a Marxist but he can write. His "King Rat" was excellent.

Ditto Steven Brust and Will Shetterly. While they are socialists of one stripe or another, they are also great SF/F writers.

It's about good writing and good stories, not politics. Which is why the Puppies are getting it right and the Hugo clique are destroying their own award.

Blogger VD April 04, 2017 11:47 AM  

It was worth pointing out.

No, it most certainly was not. It was absolutely ridiculous to assume that I and the regular readers here did not know that. All you did was demonstrate that you don't know the audience you are addressing.

Now drop it.

I've been binging on Castalia house authors and books for the last couple weeks (I've been sicker than a dog). The good is really good and the best is great.

Since you're just getting better at putting out good stuff why bother with the tarnished hugos?

On a different topic is Fenris Wulf writing more? And how will we know it's him? The nom de plume really only works for semi Norse semi-apocalyptic stuff.

This is pretty amazing. The first year of this whole thing, we said the Hugos were all about block voting to promote SJW friendly books and prevent wins by non SJWs books. This year they are proud to shout to all listening that the Hugos are all about block votes to promote SJW books and prevent wins by non SJWs.

This reminds me of that Sun Tzu line: If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

They're clutching their rocket statues while the entire battlefield is in flames and their forces are in retreat everywhere. Meanwhile I'm going to go read some Dragon Award winners.

Blogger Jon D. April 04, 2017 12:48 PM  

I followed up and did a little Hugos By The Numbers analysis: http://delarroz.com/?p=771

Conclusion: Vox Day won. His shock and awe campaign destroyed them, and due to their own hubris. Honestly a lesson here for the long-term devastation current immigration policy causes if someone felt like writing that up.

Serious question for the mods, do you know which threads are going or are likely to bring the trolls beforehand? They're predictable once they get here but sometimes I'm stunned they even bother given whatever it is we're discussing. Is nothing too mundane for them? Nothing settled to the point they can just move on? And why lurk here just to wait for a subject you want to troll?

That is why they are so eager to run the numbers and determine the number of Rabid voters. They are trying to figure out how many votes they need to lock out puppy votes. Next year they are going to try and coordinate their block voting to make sure all their favored works get ~120 votes a piece. If they think that number is going to win next year they are underestimating Vox's ability to plan ahead.

Blogger seeingsights April 04, 2017 3:57 PM  

It is to be expected that TOR, being a major science fiction publisher, will have some finalists on the ballot. However, it seems quite a bit this time. For example TOR has finalists for short story, yet no short story from the three traditional SF mags (Asimov's, Analog, and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction) is a finalist. The rules were changed to benefit TOR. The TOR empire strikes back.

___*“That Game We Played During the War”*____

Rocket Stack Rank slid his Rageaholic manfully through The Obelisk Gate as she moaned "The Ballad of Black Tom" in anticipation.

The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe was this: A Taste of Honey, Every Heart a Doorway, and she chanted it Beneath Ceaseless Skies, her mantra to The Jewel and Her Lapidary.

"Touring with the Alien" had paid off for her, and now she bucked at the promise of “A Fist of Permutations in Lightning and Wildflowers”

"Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies," Rocket whispered, huskily.

"The Tomato Thief!" she exclaimed, as the brute man and the bulging manhood engaged in a mortal “Battle of the Bastards."

She realized too late she should have gone with the Ditch Diggers, as the brewing thunder that her Lady Business had been hoping for had, instead, come Too Like the Lightning.

Vellitt lay in Splendor & Misery.

For her, there would be no Fangirl Happy Hour.

Is there an award for recursive trolling of awards?

Blogger John Wright April 04, 2017 6:23 PM  

I have no idea who would dare mock the prestige-dripping Hugo Award as now being the corrupt and shrinking safe space of a likeminded warren of conformist hacks all writing bland variations of the same few leftwing talking points. Just look at the startling and imaginative stories and big name authoresses in which I find myself in rigorous competition this year!

In the Best Short Story category:

• “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Dear" by Pixiliated Smudge
('SFF for Women' issue, Tor.com, November 2016)

• “If You Were a Deer, My Dinosaur" by Vinolent Odiferous Eructation
('SFF for Women by Women' anthology, Tor Books, December 2016)

• "I Flower Ewe a Dinner Score, Mithra!" by Imbroglio van Oblate
('SF for Neuro-Atypical Women' anthology, Patrick Nielsen Hayden Publishing Group, Whatevember 2016)

• “Soaring with Divining Yews, More Drear" by Tripe Lemming
('SFF for No One' anthology, Tor/Forge Books, Sometimember 2016)

• “Why My Dino Was Sore, Dear Me", by Mohammed Mehmet 'Boom-boom' al-Mahound
('Put Your SFF Infidel Whores in Burqas II' anthology, Tor-Macmillan Books, Ramadan, 2016)

• “An Unmentionable Wright”, by John C. Wright
('Vox is God, Robot' anthology, Supreme Dark Lord Press, 2601)

I must say what an honor it is even to be nominated, and to share this nomination with such illustrious names as Miss Smudge, Mrs. Eructation, Mrs. van Oblate, Ms. Lemming, and, of course, Mr. al-Mahound.

Even if I do not win, I would like to thank my taskmaster Vox Day, his evil twin brother Vox Night, and the little man who threatened me with bodily harm, Vox Cutter, who compelled me to write a story of some sort.

Unfortunately, I was roaring drunk on sterno when it came time to write, so I merely put on the keyboard my feral cat, Lucifer Superbus (whom I feed each midnight only on tender human meat gained legally from the local abortion clinic) and dangled a string of intestine before him, to see what might result.

The Hugos are indeed as worthy of respect as an honest measure of the best in the field as might be an Oscar, the Nobel Peace Prize, or a medal from the Supreme Soviet.
