IMG_7074 The Hugo Awards Struggle for Relevance
The Hugo Awards Struggle for Relevance, a.k.a. the Sad Puppies debacle panel. Left to right: Michelle Muenzler (moderator), Jacob Weisman, Lou Antonelli, Marguerite Reed, Justin Landon. The blood didn't flow, and everyone was remarkably polite. They discussed who exactly do the Hugo Awards represent, and why it would be bad for them to become irrelevant, or for the science fiction and fantasy community to become too divided. A certain author, who was nominated for Hugos by the Sad Puppy slate, expressed regret with how it turned out.
Here are my other blog posts from ArmadilloCon 37:
What You Should Have Read In 2014-2015 panel, where a group of writers, booksellers, critics, editors, or publishers review the most notable science fiction and fantasy books that came out between the last ArmadilloCon and this one.
