Rabid Puppies 2016: Best Novelette

The preliminary recommendations for the Best Novelette category.
  • "Flashpoint: Titan", Kai Wai Cheah
  • "Folding Beijing", Hao Jingfang
  • "What Price Humanity?", David VanDyke
  • "Space Raptor Butt Invasion", Chuck Tingle
  • "Obits", Stephen King
We have been repeatedly informed that homophobia and the lack of diversity is a serious problem in science fiction, and speaking as the leader of Rabid Puppies, I could not agree more. The decades of discrimination against gay dinosaur love in space by the science fiction community stops now, and it stops here!

Let's face it, there are just three words to describe the only event that might happen in 2016 that I can imagine would be more spectacularly awesome than "Space Raptor Butt Invasion" winning a Hugo Award this year, and those three words are "President-elect Donald Trump".

    Personally, My Billionaire Triceratops Craves Gay Ass, was Chuck Tingle's best erotica, eh scifi novel and is much better than gay sex with raptors, because eww.

    I am so happy I have a voting membership.

    Nate, I think Monty Python put it best:

    Yes, a most appropriate choice, one I think Scalzi, GRRM, and Gerrold will wholeassedly back. And we know Chuck Tingle can't be one of their pen names either- the writing is too creative, too original. Just imagine how it will look with an Official Gerrold Asterisk on it.

    "I'm scared to click on those reviews to see if any actually have verified purchases... I don't want to live in a world where humans pay for that stuff."

    you know you have to be very careful with these games on the internet. I've long been attempting to falsify Internet Rule 34... which claims that anything you can imagine exists in porn form on the Internet.

    my hypothesis is that if you can find Gay Midget Clown Porn you can find anything.

    I have never found gay midget clown porn.

    I did find something that gives me nightmares to this day though... an art film style porn video of a dude banging a midget... with a clown sitting in the corner on a wooden chair watching them.

    ***shudder***

    and... just like that... its 9:45 am... and you all need a drink.

    I second Nate's question. Inquiring minds want to know.

    Vox, Dr. Tingle has a bunch of short stories he wrote in 2015. You sure you want to nominate only 1 and not 5? Surely "Angry Man Pounded By The Fear Of His Latent Gayness Over A Dinosaur Transitioning Into A Unicorn" is just as worthy an entry (pun) for the great Hugo awards?

    Overlooked in this is Stephen King's first fiction Hugo nomination.

    That means:

    The Shining
    The Stand
    The Crate
    The Long Walk
    The Dead Zone
    The Talisman
    IT
    Firestarter

    ...NOT ONE was nominated for a Hugo.

    Stephen King wrote something great about awards awhile ago on Facebook. He wrote that once he realized that most awards were lobbying/networking things, not quality things, he didn't care to participate. "Sit at a table, get an award" was the basic gist of his complaint. As in, visit a convention, draw some attention, strategize with insiders, and get an award. It seemed like a waste of time to him, IIRC.

    No. But due to the power of Rabid Puppies, a recommendation significantly increases one's chances of getting a nomination.

    I downloaded and read Space Raptor Butt Invasion (how could I not, with a title like that!) for the princely price of £0.00 with Kindle Unlimited. It was a laugh-out-loud read and the title describes it perfectly. In fact, so impressed was I, that I followed it up with Pounded by the Gay Unicorn Football Squad (also available for £0.00 from Kindle Unlimited). The latter came with a special bonus porno about sentient gay doughnuts and 'glazing' will never mean the same again.
