I Beg Your Pardon?

April 6, 2015

Huh?At an unfortunate intersection of literature and politics, we find Phillip Sandifer:

The Hugo Award Nominations have just been successfully hijacked by neofascists.

Oh. My.

There is an underlying fundraising appeal, so, you know, something, something, Burt Ward. Still, though: Really?

I mean, it’s one thing to say that’s a heck of a statement, and things only go downhill from there, but the idea that woman suffrage and evolutionary racism still haunt literary awards is at least a little unsettling.
