Reading stories, wrestling pigs, the repetition of history. You know, the Hugos.

I edited my post from yesterday to add this, but I’m going to make it as a statement all its own too (with a little expansion), since I don’t think I made this point as strongly as I wanted. While my sideeyeing here is mighty, I’m going to do my best to give the fiction in the Hugo ...

Happy Hugo Nomination Day! (In which I go “Yay!” and sideeye simultaneously.) 6

I know, I drop off the internets for two weeks (I have a massive slate of excuses that I’m planning to elaborate on…soon-ish) and then two posts in one day! Zomg! But the Hugo nominations just got released, so I’m going to react in between moving my plate so my cat can’t get to my ...
