Hugo nominations

Nippon in 2007 logo The Hugo nominations have been announced; many thanks to all who nominated Plokta; we're honoured. Science Fiction Five Yearly will wipe the floor with us, and rightly so.

Elsewhere, all fandom has been plunged into war by John Scalzi's nomination for fan writer. He is a pro, who writes entertainingly about topics of general fannish interest on his blog. But he's perhaps not quite a truff, so should he be getting a fan writer award?

My take on it is this: I cannot imagine a time in the entire long history of our subculture where faneds would not have fought over an article by a professional sf writer about how he *taped bacon to his cat* in an effort to avoid writing. Fan writing. Absolutely.
