Would sci-fi focus, as it has for much of its history, largely on brave white male engineers with ray guns fighting either a) hideous aliens or b) hideous governments who don’t want them to mine asteroids in space?

Sorry, I stopped reading right there. This is an uninformed and wildly inaccurate stereotype used by people who want to disparage the entire genre but who cannot be bothered to actually learn anything about it. It hasn’t been even close to the truth since perhaps 1950.
Samuel “Chip” Delaney, who is black and very publicly gay, won a Hugo almost 50 years ago for Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-Precious Stones The New York fan club and writer’s circle known as the Futurians had a decidedly leftist bent and defined SF from the 30s until quite recently. The membership list is a Who’s Who of SF from the 30s onward and included such iconic figures as Isaac Asimov, James Blish, and Fred Pohl.
In the 50s, Ursula K. LeGuin and many others published works that were decades ahead of their time in terms of cultural and environmental sensitivity. I could go on and on.
These puppy people in fact claim to be a subversive group within a largely left leaning genre . Since there has long been a large sub-genre of libertarian and right-wing science fiction, this is not quite accurate, but they are certainly not defenders of some imaginary and cartoonish status quo.

The entire point of Sad Puppies, ran by Democrat Brad R Torgersen, was to prove that the Hugos were being fixed by a group of gatekeepers keeping out the “wrong sort of fans.”

To this end they did the unforgivable sin of nominating works without the permission of the right sort of fans. Disgusting, horrible misogynistic works with absolutely no literary value like The Dresden Files and John C Wright’s One Bright Star to Guide Them.

And in response, the CHORFs — the Cliquish, Holier-than-thou, Obnoxious, Reactionary, Fanatics — that were gatekeeping the Hugos decided to destroy them rather than let some good works nominated by the “wrong sort of fans” win an award.

They proved the Sad Puppies point better than anyone hoped or feared. The Hugos have been forever tarnished, because a bunch of cliquish gatekeepers chose to burn it to the ground rather than let people guilty of wrongthink vote on works that weren’t pre-chosen to win by a tiny clique of TOR editors. Just like George R R Martin warned not to do back in April.

No butthurt, just a sad shaking of the head. Remember, the people fixing the hugos swore up and down that slates weren’t a thing, weren’t important, that there wasn’t any politicization of the votes, yadda yadda.

The Sad Puppies won. It’s sad to see a prestigious award like the Hugos get tarnished because a tiny minority of fans have been using it to push a political agenda — even one I agree with — but that’s where we’re at.

Who can now say with a straight face that the Hugos represent fandom? That they’re a prestigious award? We just saw a cabal of political hacks vote No Award not on the merits of the nominees, but just to spite the “wrong sort of fans” voting.

re: #2 KiTA

First: WTF was the point in mentioning he’s a democrat? Were you counting on us to assume that means he’s a liberal and therefore an SJW and accept his POV because the Lizardim are so trusting? If so…welcome to the Mirror Universe…things are different here.

But kidding aside, the whole Puppybullshitgate was not, is not, and will NEVER be about nominating good sci-fi. Its always about SJWs. You know as well as I do, that many of the “fans” that voted puppy had no goddamn clue about anything they were voting on, they were just zerging the voting system because they heard it would piss off the SJWs.

A quick examination of the raw numbers show that the Puppies did not vote lockstep, where as those following Moen’s Puppy Kicker Slate absolutely did.

As a point of reference, I have been involved in the SF community since the mid-70s.
I have been voting for Hugo awards (and actually reading each nomination) longer than many lizards have been alive.
I don’t need a gamergate apologist lecturing me about this year’s Hugo crapfest.

This is, by the way, a useful excerpt from the article that people might appreciate seeing:

While waiting for Sasquan’s annual Masquerade costume competition to begin Friday night, I overheard a man clad all in tie-dye tell his tie-dye swathed companion something very similar: “I like the type of books the Puppies were promoting. I just don’t like the way they did it.”

The reality is that the Hugos never represented all of fandom. They represented the folks who attended Worldcon, which is a community same as any others. Some folks felt excluded from that community - and I am not here to judge the validity of that - and their response was to attempt to burn it down.

A lot of people can disagree with that without having to be part of a secret political cabal. Dear god, the conspiracy theories that have come out of this are incredibly pathetic. Like. Really.

The Sad Puppies are not in any way associated with Vox Day, and to suggest so is dishonest.

re: #12 William Lewis

With the success of NO AWARD, I’d say that Yes the Hugos reflect fans much more than the Sick Puppies do.

But only the “right kind of fans,” right? Because the Sad Puppies, they’re not real fans, they’re … ugh… GamerGaters (even though Sad Puppies existed years before GamerGate) and ugh, Dudebros, Conservative, Vox Day Clones, Misogynists, Anti-Feminists, (Insert your favorite boogyman here).

Because you can’t be a realfan if you support GamerGate. You can’t be a realfan if you don’t shun Vox Day hard enough. You can’t be a realfan if you’re not a third wave TERF. You can’t be a realfan if you don’t agree with the realfans in any way whatsoever.

Listen, I’ve attracted my downvoting fanclub again, so I’ll just leave with this: The entire point of the Sad Puppies were to point out that the Hugos were being influenced by voting blocs — slates, in other words. The “other side” insisted that this wasn’t true and that even if it was, they didn’t have much influence.

In this regard, the Sad Puppies absolutely, without a doubt, proved their point.

Just because you happen to like the political stance that the No Award bloc took, doesn’t make it less of a bloc, nor does it in any way disprove that the Hugos are affected by this sort of manipulation. The only difference is this year the manipulation was out in the open.

Nope. Vox Day is behidn the Rabid Puppies, a different thing entirely.

Here’s the Sad Puppies 3 slate. Explain to me how this list is so utterly horrible that the authors on it should be shunned just for being on it?

Hell, Jim Butcher has gotten death threats over this. Over being voted on by the wrong kind of fans. Something is seriously wrong with people.

re: #21 Backwoods_Sleuth

Vox Day has a section just for himself in the Encyclpedia of American Loons.

He may be a passable SF writer, but I’ll let the diagnosis speak for itself:

Diagnosis: Exasperatingly ignorant bigot and anti-science loon and lover of middle school level fallacies. In fact, he is the very epitome of a crank. He does in fact have a fair amount of readers, however, and must be considered dangerous.

Smith was perhaps the most ‘political’ SF writer of all, in his real life.

Dr. Linebarger (Cordwainer Smith) was perhaps this country’s top expert on psychological warfare in counter-insurgency situations after World War II. I have often wondered what he would have made of our Vietnam strategy in the late 60s, and if he could have influenced it for the better. It was not to be, though. He avoided Vietnam in earlier phases of the conflict and died in 1966, before the pressure of events might have forced him to take a role.

I think we’re not on the same page here.

For the record, there were 4 (initial reports said 6) No Awards this year. 5 prior to this year in the entire history of the Hugos.

The fix that the Sad Puppies are upset about isn’t the No Awards bloc. The fix was that these kinds of blocs have been going on for years behind the scenes, and the Hugos are politicized and don’t actually represent a fandom’s choice award. The scandal was that these voting slates were secret and denied by the big name fans and people in the industry that were behind them.

I Stand With Planned Parenthood  Aug 25, 2015 • 6:08:44am
Nonetheless, based on his voluminous writings, it can be said that Theodore Beale—who writes fiction as a hobby while working as a game designer—openly opposes racial diversity, homosexuality, and women’s suffrage. Beale quibbles with those assertions, as he did with me when I reached him at his home in Northern Italy. For example, he says he doesn’t oppose all women’s suffrage, just women (and most men) voting in a representative democracy, like the one we have, um, in America. The reason: “Women are very, very highly inclined to value security over liberty” and thus are “very, very easy to manipulate.” (He favors direct democracy—and, obviously, men). At one point, he emailed that he would be “very disappointed” if I failed to quote the Wall Street Journal’s label for him: “the most despised man in science fiction.”

re: #49 sffilk

Just a dabbler, alas. Co-wrote several Doctor Who filks with a couple of friends (okay, quite a few filks) but didn’t have the voice or instrumental skills to perform. Or the nerve. But loved Technical Difficulties — had both Station Break and Please Stand By on cassette at one time. Also a copy of the multi-performer tape Look What Followed Me Home. The tape we we were attempting to copy is a cassette I got from my sister who’s a more serious filkfan; it included songs from both TD albums plus a few extras from Bill Sutton.

Sad to say, the attempt to record onto CD did NOT work, going to have to find another device. Boogers.

Found this interesting note on the intertubes:
seattlewebcrafters.com
If the link doesn’t work, they’re noting that TJ Burnside Clapp was talking to Bill Roper in 2006 about putting the albums on CD through Dodeka Records. Alas, no indication that it’s actually been done.

Are you collecting filks, I ask in interest?
