So there’s been a big hub-bub about the Hugo’s this year. For those of you not familiar with the Hugo Awards, they’re literature’s (or at least sci-if/fantasy’s) Oscars.
Anyway, so there was a big to-do over rigged voting and the wrong candidates winning and whatnot. And, I’m sorry, but I don’t care. I really don’t. I should, but I don’t.
Rigged voting and gaming the system is bad, but the Hugo’s have been so rigged for years, it’s hard to care when someone else games the system. Besides, I find awards for art kind of pretentious to begin with. Art is subjective. Awarding some art over others is a dubious prospect to begin with. Not one without merit, but still not to be taken too seriously. And the people who take that award specifically this seriously…sorry, I don’t care. Again, maybe I should, but I don’t.
In other news, we have an official release on Samifel, my newest novel from Haven Publishing House. The book will be live on Amazon on September 10th, just in time for MAGClassic. You are coming to MAGClassic, right?
See you there!
