"The big winners were the Rabid Puppies"

I always find it amusing how the media is always quick to point out that NK Jemisin is black, but they never seem to mention the fact that I am an American Indian. Perhaps I need to publicly exhibit more scalps. They also never get around to mentioning why I was criticizing the ignorant, half-savage Jemisin, which is because she is a) a low-IQ cretin, b) a liar, and, c) had repeatedly attacked me sans provocation or even knowledge of who she was.
Rabid Puppies leader Vox Day, a self-described libertarian, has criticized best-selling science fiction writer N.K. Jemisin, who is black, as  an "ignorant half-savage," writing, "Unlike the white males she excoriates, there is no evidence to be found anywhere on the planet that a society of NK Jemisins is capable of building an advanced civilization, or even successfully maintaining one without significant external support from those white males."

George R.R. Martin has criticized both the puppies' agenda and their aesthetic. “When the Hugo ballot came out last year, it was not just a right-wing ballot, it was a bad ballot,” he told the Guardian prior to Tuesday's finalist announcement.

The Rabid Puppies, the more extreme of the two groups, this year created a slate of potential nominees that they urged Hugo voters to nominate. Out of 81 recommendations on that slate, 64 ended up shortlisted.

Day, who calls himself "Supreme Dark Lord, Evil Legion of Evil," wasted no time in gloating. A news release sent by Day reads in part: "'I'm not even remotely surprised to learn that the Rabid Puppies did so well,' said Vox Day, as he mopped his brow with the flayed skin of an SJW after an arduous night of celebrating his fourth and fifth nominations."
That being said, full props to Mr. Schaub, who did his research, provided a grammatically correct quote about Jemisin instead of a cherry-picked sentence fragment, and actually quoted the Bloggerblaster.

He's not on our side, obviously, and yet it's a much better article than most. The only thing he really got wrong is the idea that I expected Chuck Tingle's nomination to outrage my critics. I don't give a quantum of a damn what my critics thought about it. Some things are worth doing simply because they are amusing.

I should also point out that I don't call myself "Supreme Dark Lord". That is merely how I am acknowledged by the Evil Legion of Evil, and, of course, the Vile Faceless Minions.

Meanwhile, George RR Martin completely fails to realize that he is already playing my game as he contemplates the 2016 Hugo Awards:
The big winners were the Rabid Puppies, whose choices completely dominated the list. The Rabids had nominees in every category, I believe, and in a few categories they had ALL the nominees.... The Rabids used a new tactic this year. They nominated legitimate, quality works in addition to the dross. Works by writers like Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Neal Stephenson, Alastair Reynolds (Reynolds went public well before the nominations asking NOT to be slated, but they slated him anyway), Andy Weir, and several others. Some of these writers are apolitical (like Weir), while others are known to oppose everything that VD stands for (Gaiman, Stephenson, King). One has to think they were deliberately targeted.

In some of the online comments I've seen, these writers are being called "shields." I've even read some people calling for them to withdraw, simply because they were on VD's list.

Withdrawing is the LAST thing they should do.

I urge them all to stand their ground. They wrote good books, stories, graphic novels, they did NOT take part in any slate. In some cases they were largely unaware of all this. In other cases they explicitly denounced the slates ahead of time (Reynolds, again). Punishing them... demanding they turn down this honor... simply because VD listed them is insane.

Marko Kloos and Annie Bellet did the right thing by withdrawing last year. Their was an ethical and courageous act; I applauded them then and I applaud them now. But this is a different year and a different situation. Given the well-known political views of some of these writers, it seems plain to me that VD and the Rabids picked them deliberately, in hopes they would withdraw, or would be voted under No Award. They would probably have put Scalzi (VD's best bro) on the ballot too, but he outsmarted them and withdrew before they could.

I am rather hoping that several of them win. Based on quality alone, some deserve to. Sure, VD will claim that as a victory, but as last year proves, he claims everything as a victory. We'll know the truth. The only real victory for him would be having any of these fine writers pull out. Let's not play his game.
It's always amusing to see people like Rape Rape, who has no idea whatsoever  about my motivations, my strategies, or my objectives, trying to declare what my victory conditions are, and how it is impossible for me to reach them.

I desperately want to win Hugos. I don't care about the Hugos. I want to destroy the Hugos. It pains me to have to point out that they obviously can't all be correct.

Your muse is certainly burning those midnight candles...

Let them assign whatever motivation they fancy. the end result will still be perplexing and amusing. Imagine Thulsa Doom leading his hoard to the Cimmerian village, only to stop in puzzlement to find that the villagers have already burned it, half of the villagers crying and comforting the other half that lie in the ground in puddles of blood from self-induced cuts and stabs. All look upon Doom and point and Screech....

You know...I'm going to stop writing. This is creeping even me out.

Aha! It's no coincidence that they're spec-fic fans, and bizarre dishonest weirdos, and mentally unstable. Those all flow from the existential sadness of having been banned from their home dimension in which the law of the excluded middle does not apply, and also having not been banned but rather just accidentally stumbled through the barriers between worlds and who knows what their loved ones must think, and also not that but having purposefully fled their dying world which was under assault from invading ZFG shitlords.

Every mainstream media story about the Hugo Awards always begins by describing the Hugo Awards as the most prestigious prize in SF/F.

They don't often follow that by noting that the most prestigious prize in SF/F is determined by voters with such rigid qualifications as 1) Do you have $40? 2) Can you type even if you have flippers for hands?

Rarely mentioned is that the most prestigious prize in SF/F was determined by a record-setting 4,000 people. According to File770, as recently as 2009 ( another record-setting year), it was determined by 800 people.

The story isn't about GamerGate in the Hugos, or racism, or trolling. The real story is that true SF/F fans are so beflippered that they cannot type, and therefore the most prestigious prize in SF/F is determined by a mere handful of voters with finger-hands.

And this is where you fail. Because your ability to make rational and in fact useful categorical distinctions is a Marxist /progressive fail. They cannot tell the difference between adult stem cell research (an unqualified good) and destructive fetal stem cell research (a moral catastrophe and a scientific dead-end.)

We distinguish between people who have a moral duty to preserve the natural environment that God gave us: we call them conservatives; the Marxist ignoramus who worship Gaia, we call environmentalists.

We have a word for female persons who cannot reason : no, who will not reason. It's "feminist."

An odd lapse of judgment on his part, since he bought at least some of that dross for his own anthology, when he placed 'Guyal the Curator' in the prestigious and well received Jack Vance tribute anthology SONGS OF THE DYING EARTH, where he was one of the editors.

At least, his name is on the cover. He wrote a post now denying that he read my story, which is a statement that calls his honesty into question whether it is true or false.

A sad case! And to think I once admired him. Why can't he shut his trap, stop saying such hurtful and absurd things, and write his bloody books? I am rooting for Jon Snow as next king.

A sad case! And to think I once admired him. Why can't he shut his trap, stop saying such hurtful and absurd things, and write his bloody books? I am rooting for Jon Snow as next king.

He is waiting for the TV show at this point.

And I'm not really kidding.

He's an explorer and he is tired of the exploration. I get that, I honestly do. His last book proved that he was bored to tears and uninspired by his own characters. Dances with Dragons was fan fiction. He is exploring side characters to try and get his motor running again.

As for Jon Snow being the next king. I have some doubts there as well. In the first draft outline he submitted it was to be Jon and Arya who were supposed to be torn by their deeply forbidden love for each other. Which would have Jon and Arya the only people in all of Westeros that didn't immediately commit incest the moment they thought of it. So that "romance" may yet be in the cards. So who marries Dani, then?

Since this is roughly based on the War of the Roses, I suspect Tyrion is the better candidate to marry Khalessi-Sue and become the next king a la Richard III. And then have Richard win at his version of Bosworth Field, with much weeping wailing over the body Jon Snow.



Regardless. For my money, the entire SoIaF series is nowhere near as good as Poul Anderson's the Broken Sword
. And that only took two hundred pages.

The Chinless Wonder has been showing classic signs of depression. His twitter posts are increasingly about how his brain isn't up to speed on a particular day; he's often distracted by mundane activities (taking photos of cats and sunsets, or anything that keeps him away from a blank Word document); and he goes on and on about the vast amounts of fattening and unhealthy food he's shoving into his rapidly aging, bloated body.

Will GRRM and his followers claim that some of those reviews originated from puppet accounts or something? For, they can easily check the profiles of their authors and see for how long they have been posting reviews on Amazon. Shall we ignore Goodreads rating and reviews, some of 4+ stars ones written by people that even expressed dislike for JCW's views while still praising the work itself in their reviews? Shall we look at the praise from Hodgson fans from weird fiction communities, some of them liberals and far end nihilists that subscribe to or even proselytize same philosophy as the likes of Thomas Ligotti, which is as far as you get from JCW's own views? And finally, shall we who have read and re-read that book ignore our own thoughts and feelings?
