Over at Brad Torgersen’s blog, the editor of Sci Phi Journal and Superversive blogger Jason Rennie announces he doesn’t particularly want a Hugo Award.
Do you know how much Vox cares about actually winning one of those cheap plastic rockets? Not at all would probably be overstating the case AFAICS. Heck, i’m on the ballot twice and I don’t really care about winning one either. Makes no difference to me. I don’t expect it to translate into subs for Sci Phi Journal and that is the only validation I care about. It might boost the profile of SuperversiveSF some and that is welcome but that will happen whether we win or not. https://bradrtorgersen.wordpress.com/2016/05/17/panel-how-to-protect-science-fiction-awards-from-bad-people/#comment-18397Archive link
Odd, if he didn’t care about the awards, why is he staying on the ballot other than to make Vox happy?
